These Steller's Jay images were created using a simple set up in my front yard yesterday in Mendocino County, Northern California. The set up consisted of a moss and lichen covered oak branch clamped above a platform feeder. The background used was a 4 foot square of Masonite hardboard painted green supported by a background stand. The photography was little slow because it was late afternoon and the wind was blowing. Birds really hate that because it's harder to spot predators with all the branches moving. They were photographed with a Canon 7D MkII camera and a Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM Lens set to 275mm. The camera settings used were AV mode, ISO 800, F 5.6 at 1/80th of a sec. I was using a tripod.#TeamCanon God's love and blessings to everyone, chris
