Looking Back : This Week a Year Ago on ISBAA

This blog went daily a year ago last month and I have been fortunate to have a lot of new followers come along for the ride since. Here is one of the more popular posts on this blog from a year ago this week.

rob paine photo While photographing some backyard birds a couple of weeks ago, I came upon this scene. Sometimes we wonder who eats more of our birdseed, the birds or these menaces to society, squirrels.

But on this particular morning, the SQ took the fall. I first noticed him eyeing the feeder from a nearby porch rail and zoomed in on the culprit.

He jumped and in a split second lost his footing on the feeder and went airborne as a handful of bird grub trailed behind. I fired off 4-5 frames of this slip, but this was the moment I chose. I love the way the feed seems to fill the entire frame.

Ultimately, the SQ lost the battle but won the war. He creeped back on the porch floor to gobble up all the feed he knocked down during his flight. My two dogs were not happy.
