I'm taking my morning tea with Lightroom and a few of last night's photos. As I'm typing, I keep looking up and out a window from my basement and just noticed a blue jay that has perched himself on a branch. Maybe I will be lucky enough to capture him in a photograph later today. Our jays seem to be very shy around here though, even though they know who fills their feeder every week. Oh, and now I see a very large woodpecker, another camera shy bird. Maybe I need a more powerful lens, so I can get up close without having to get up close.
On a different note, I have a nephew who is turning 19 today, and I was able to claim him for lunch this afternoon. He is the oldest of all my sister's and my children, and there are 10 of them. I am truly looking forward to this get together, as I rarely get to see him on his own. Almost never, in fact. But every time I do see him, he shows me a gorgeous photo of a sunrise or sunset on his phone. The kiddo's got a natural eye for good composition.
So this photo is for you Jay. Have a very Happy Birthday!
