I had some peanuts leftover from feeding the squirrels on the weekend so I tried them on crows. I put a large handful on the roof of the car, as well as the camera. When the crows realized that I don’t bite then the fun began. As they swooped in to snatch up a peanut, I clicked the shutter. Then the crows made a public announcement that there was food available and the seagulls swooped in. Had to wash the car after.
I went out looking for birds to photograph and instead became fascinated with this Maple leaf that had fallen on the car window.
This Trumpeter Swan was giving the ‘Out of my way’ warning to a flock of Cackling Geese –
We went back to Mayne Island for Thanksgiving long weekend (Canada). Sandstone punctuates the coastline with some brilliant natural formations.
This crow looks resigned to the fact that the rainy season is here.
I always find the back of birds just as interesting as the front. This crow was good enough to stay relatively still for me.
