Blue Jay


This one has been a long time coming. I have taken a few photos of blue jays over the years, but I have struggled to get a good shot. I could hear him long before I was able to locate him. He was straight over my head, way up in this tree. I had to step back to get an angle The 1st shot was his back side.... not what I was looking for. Lucky for me, he jumped to the right and gave me this profile. I was able to get this shot. There is a twig in the way, but it’s not bad. I did see another cardinal or two, and managed a few photos of them as well.

We will be in Yosemite soon. I hope post some grant photos from there. Have a beautiful weekend.
