The sun rose bright and shining this morning with not a cloud in the sky. I knew this meant a very short time for bird photography because it gets way to bright for decent images rather quickly. I skipped breakfast and headed out to the photoblind. The only creatures that visited the bird feeder were jays and squirrels. When God gives you jays and squirrels that's what you photograph. Here is a Steller's Jay from my photoblind in Mendocino County, Northern California. Enjoy and God bless, chris Image created with a Canon 7D and a Tamron 150-600mm lens at 150mm. Camera settings used. AV mode, ISO 800,F 5.0 at 1/25th of a sec. It was still pretty dark as shown by the low shutter speed. Camera was supported by a Manfrotto 055 XPROB tripod with a Bogen 3055 Ballhead. Matthew 6:26 New International Version (NIV) 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?
