For days I've been taking photos like this...
Day after day I'd take photos of Bode's dog dish.
I'd wait and wait, listen for my cue, then miss the shot I waited for.
Sometimes I'd almost get it, only to have Bode disrupt the scene.
But last night our little dinner guest squawked overhead for a bit. I've come to learn that he announces his arrival to the neighborhood. This time, Bode was sleeping. I quickly got my camera and then sat as still as I could on a chair in my living room. I waited and THIS time it paid off! Can you see our dinner guest in this photo? Sorry, but I had to zoom in and of course lost a lot of photo quality that way.
He hopped down by the dog dish and looked around a bit.
Then he helped himself to dinner.
He flew off but I heard more squawking and sure enough, he returned for dessert!
He took one more piece and was gone for the evening. I was satisfied.
Who knew that blue jays enjoyed Purina?
