Back to the birdfeeder . . . although I had seen up to six blue jays at this feeder at the same time, I was surprised to catch the woodpecker and the jay there at the same time. I couldn't abandon the shots from that day without sharing this one . . . .

Hi Karen,
This is gorgeous. Beautiful colors and perfect lighting. A really fine posting and into my favorites it goes. Thanks so much. Julie

wonderful capture.beautiful detail and great colors!

Hi Karen, Normally, I'm not a bird person (don't take it personally), but this IS AN OUTSTANDING photo of birds that I have seen. The colors are magnificent and so brilliant. It is most fortunate that you were able to capture two different birds at once. You would have thought they would not do that.

Very beautiful shot. Well done.... Lisa

Very nice capture Karen. Love the contrasting colors of the 2 birds. Excellent composition and prefect exposure.

Hi Karen

What a wonderful sight! Two brightly coloured attractive birds in perfect focus and lovely poses. Excellent work.



I envy you for having a birdfeeder at home or one where you can go to and get this kind of picture! My stepmother has one but she lives 450 kms away from us ....lol. What a beautiful pair you have captured here ,they don't seem to mind each other's presence though .Crisp and neat image with great details in the birds'plumage .A job well done with the zoom lens ,Bravo Karen,

Hi Karen,
This is a great capture! Excellent clarity, crisp images and vivid plumage on the birds! Thanks for sharing,

Hello Karen
