A wonderful photo
Jennifer and Paul:
Thanks! I just got lucky a few days ago when we had a warm day here in Missouri and this BJ decided to take a dip.
Very nice image Blue Jay in the bath, Gary. Great job.
Also, it’s nice to see another Route 66 town represented on feederwatch.org.
Very Nice! Wonderful light! Also, love the portrait pose!
You were definitely in the right place, right time…not all luck though… unique!
All the best…
Shellee: Thanks! Yup, get your kicks on … 🙂
Theresa: The BJ was in the right position for the shot. Thanks!
