It began when Heather put some bread on a fence post. When she saw that the jays were attracted, she moved it to the old wagon wheels. While I didn't get any photos from the post, I set up my camera on a tripod pointing towards the wagon wheels and retreated to fire remotely. I have previously posted the first photo, but I like it a lot, so I am posting it again as I think it belongs to this series. Of all the photos that I took, this one had the best light, caught by an interlude sunlight (in otherwise mostly cloudy conditions) from the setting sun.
But I do have a few more from that general position. The ones with multiple birds are composites from more than one shot. As much fun as I had doing the composites, I think the one of the solitary jay on top of the wagon wheel is my next favourite.
Inspired by this success, Heather went on to move the bread and create other feeder venues.
