As noted in the previous post I usually shoot high-speed continuous when photographing wildlife. Poses and expressions change far to quickly for me to successfully capture just the right moment otherwise; thank God for digital!
In this series a Blue Jay landed between the natural feeders striking different poses as it checked me out trying to decide if it was safe to put its head into the woodpecker hole to retrieve some food.
This particular perch is a favorite of mine because of the beautiful brown tones imparted by the dead poke and the more muted browns and grays found on the tree parts. Heavily clouded skies provided very even lighting for this series.
I'm happy with all of these images so please tell me which raucous Blue Jay shot you like most.
