More Gray Jay shots, just because I think they are cute. I too am striving to capture BIF, but with no luck yet.














A little series...


Eye Spy





Balance





Reach





Yummmm







Not a Gray Jay





Thank you for looking

Tess, these have such great clarity and texture to each photo, really nice photos and the color in the last is just plain beautiful.

I love the "Eye Spy" 's Pov and framing . They're all really great shots but this one stands out for me.

Thanks Bob The Jay landing three feed from my camera and the brilliant sunshine helped immensely!

Thank you J.R. The Tamron produces very nice bokeh, and that helps.

Those are all fabulous Tess, but that last one is special. The perfect balance of sharpness, color, and texture. The way you kept the integrity of the snow while capturing the Jay - wow!!

Splendid, Tess, simply splendid images! (and the blue jay is hoarding some cheese as well as that seed or whatever it is, great capture!)

Stunning shots Tess you have that Tamron 90 working so well I can't wait to try mine certainly can't complain about the lack of colorful birds. What kind of range where you shooting from.

As others have said, the clarity and detail here are amazing, Tess. I never new there was such a thing as a gray jay - I thought they only came in blue!

Thank you Julie... they shove as much food into their mouths as they can. It is hilarious to watch.

Thanks Westoz... these guys are really tame. I was only about three feet away. They will land on our hand or head if that is where the food is. They are quick though. I had bright sun and used a higher than usual ISO so my shutter speed was up. It worked out.

You always amaze me with what you can do with that tammy, Tess. Amazing clarity and detail on these guys. "Balance" gave me my smile for today.
