Rainy Day Jay
Today the wood stove is burning and the rain is pattering on the roof. Earlier looking outside I figured it would be a great day to photograph some birds in the rain. I grabbed a piece of mossy bark and set it up beside the bird feeders. After setting it up I didn't have long to wait before the Steller's Jays showed up and started landing on it looking for seed. With camera in tow I went out and climbed into the photoblind. I set up my camera so only the lens hood was sticking out of the lens port hole getting wet. My wait was short and I only had to sit for about fifteen minutest to get some pretty nice jay images. This one was my favorite because I love the curious look of the jay. God's love and blessings to all, chris This image was created with a Canon 7D and a Canon 100-400 IS lens at 250mm. Camera settings used were AV mode, ISO 800 F 5.0 at 1/60th of a sec. The camera was supported on a Manfrotto 055PROBX Tripod with a Bogen 3055 heavy duty ballhead.
