Washing up

Being in the suburbs, there is a lot of wildlife around. There are a couple chipmunks that live nearby and like to gather up the bird seed that falls from the feeder. Sadly, they also like my tomatoes, so its an ongoing battle to keep them out.

Now that it’s summer, I like to keep my X-T1 and new 50-140 lens close by for any bird pictures or other fauna that comes by. So I was pleased to see the little chipmunk finding a place to clean his face. I was able to snap this picture. It looks like he is saying “I can’t see you, so you can’t see me”.

Blue Jay

So, I’m sitting outside with the Fuji X-T1 with the 50-140 by my side. I had stood up with the camera, and in comes a pair of Blue Jays to eat at the bird feeder. These have been elusive birds for me. They don’t like to stick around when humans are near and in any type of motion.

As I was standing with camera in hand, they didn’t notice me, and I didn’t need to move, so I had a great view to shoot some pictures. The lens was fantastic and I got some great pictures. The problem is, which to put online to show? Here are a few.
