Challenge: Wildlife V (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon EOS-5D Mark II
Lens: Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM
Location: Snaffles Back Yard
Date: Oct 27, 2010
Aperture: 5.6
ISO: 250
Shutter: 1/640
Galleries: Birds
Date Uploaded: Oct 27, 2010

Hanging around Snaffles bird feeder, I was visited by a Blue Jay. It took roughly a few minutes, before he flew down to the grass. I was roughly 12 -15 feet away from him. Crouched low with a tripod. Being still, was the only reason he braved my presence. Although, he was quite curious as you can see. I was lucky to have some filtering light, hit his head. So yes, this is natural light, not pp work.

What's up with birds always looking at us like we're strange? :-)

Perfect DOF and sharpness in the birds head. Something about the foreground is distracting, just can't place my finger on it. Coming back to leave comment did cause me to bump up my vote :-)
