These two remind me of little knights, challenging each other in their respective colours.

I didn't realize that was a woodpecker. Cute pictures!

Enough for everyone but selfishness is a must sometimes...

That's a red-bellied woodpecker and they are fiercer than the blue jays.

Vicki, I didn't know about the ferocity of the red-bellied woodpecker. Guess that jay was making a wise strategic exit.

Your photos are extraordinary!

Delightful.
What kind of lens did you use?

Vicki Lane said...

My lens is a Nikkor 18-200mm, Kath.

Since I do not particularly like Blue Jays and since I LOVE Red-bellied Woodpeckers, this post is perfect! And Blue Jay...you don't stand a chance.

You take such good pictures of birds. I see the woodpecker and cardinals out of our kitchen window but there is a screen on it and the camera focuses on the screen.
No snow here yet – we are in the mid 50s today with full sun – I hope we get at least a day of snow this year.

Arnie's been around Austria a lot these days. Now I shall always think of a Blue Jay when I spot him. ;-)
