A Jay for Today
Among many other photographic subjects, I’ve been pursuing Stellar’s Jays for the past several years in an effort to capture a few nice images. We don’t have them near where I live, so I have sought them in my travels across the west. I find that they like to hang out in the shadows of trees, which makes photographing a dark bird kind of difficult. A couple weeks back, while at Bryce Canyon National Park, I finally had a good opportunity, and even though the bird was in the shade of a Bristlecone Pine, there was ample light to take home some good images.
