At the Bird Feeder

I try to take photos every chance I get.  Lately, work is taking up too much time and if the weather doesn’t cooperate on weekends I end up with no opportunity to shoot.  This weekend I spent with my father.  When I had the chance I took the 300mm prime and shot photos of the birds at my parent’s bird feeder.

This Blue Jay visited regularly and seemed to scare off the other birds.
