When I am photographing wildlife, It usually feels like I am hunting ... I normally have to find the wildlife.
This Scrub-Jay was different. Yes, we were driving the scenic route in Kolob Canyons. I had pulled over to take a photo of the mountains. Before I opened the door to get out of the car, I looked and saw this beautiful bird hopping around. I photographed him in mid-hop (in the photo above). He proceed to hop even closer to the car. I guess he wanted to be photographed.
I guess sometimes the bird comes to you.
