Artist's Description

A shot of a Bluejay from my backyard in Ottawa Ontario Canada ,A very vocal and mischievious bird that frequents my yard almost daily for three seasons of the year. Some Bluejays migrate and some don’t…This one does. It is part of the Corvid family which includes Ravens and Crows and shares in the intelligence afforded that group. Crafty and full of character, they often chose the heavier peanut by picking one up, dropping it then checking the next…decision making It is seen here landing on a Blue Spruce that I planted several years ago.

Techs: Canon 50D and Canon 200 2.8L and 580EX Flash. ISO 320, 1/800 sec fully open at F2.8 and -2/3 Camera exposure comp and -1 1/3 Flash Exposure Compensation. Close to full frame ..about 90% of original image.
