Moody Blues

First for the Moody part ~ photos from during the week which I quite liked.

Before we raked the leaves, we found faces like this peering through the litterfall ~ There were many other fungi but this one was particularly grotesque looking...in a cute sort of way.

And here come the Blues, Stellar Blue Jays, that is ~ Today I saw these two out of the window and quickly grabbed my camera ...

I needed to get a better viewpoint without distracting them, so I ran upstairs and tried to get a clearer shot ~ That's more like it!

And here is one of them in the cherry tree! See the buds already :)

Yes, this was a much better viewpoint ~ and what else did I see at the bottom of the garden doing a little bird watching ~

  1. I always enjoy your photos of the sky. You know just when to capture it.

    I think that cat is doing what I did yesterday also - soaking up some precious winter sun.

  2. I really like that first photo and the middle jay one. The blue on those birds is just amazing.
    Is the cat a regular visitor, it certainly looks quite at home there on the bench seat.
    What a good title for this entry! xx

  3. Thanks Liv ~ what a lovely comment :) I love looking up at the sky!! Yes, that cat was sitting in the sunshine lapping it up...probably trying to look uninterested in the birds who were flitting about.

    Flighty ~ Thanks, you picked my two favorite photos. Yes, the jays are a lovely blue colour. I think their feathers are as distinct as those of your green parrots. We seem to have a few neighbourhood cats who venture through my garden. Today I noticed a black one with white sock markings! I don't know who they belong to.

  5. I must echo Liv. You have such interesting skies to photograph, full of colours and textures and sense of time. Our days are finally cooling a bit with (gasp) the possibility of rain tonight.

  7. The neighbourhood cats love our garden too! What a treat for you to see these jays in your garden, their blue colour is certainly striking. I am quite fascinated by fungi, even grotesque varieties! x

  8. Hello Louise ~ I saw another cat on my sundeck yesterday sleeping on the rail with a planter hiding his whereabouts. On the other side of the planter was the bird feeder! Nice try cat! I was happy to get a good shot of the blue jay ~ yes, they are quite a vivid blue. Fungi are interesting, indeed...my son just received a book for his birthday ~ called Edible Mushrooms. I'd still be a bit leery about picking them to eat!
