I usually don't have good luck with birds but got a little lucky today.
great photos, i find the bright leaves to the right in the first one quite distracting though
Thanks Kcon. I agree and the bright spots are the sole reason I did the second edit/picture. I prefer the pose of the bird in the first but the background of the second.
Lucky you, getting some shots! On the rare occasions when I see a flash of blue, I grab the camera but they're so fast and skittish, I've never gotten an acceptable shot. What part of the world are you from?
I'm from the middle part of Missouri in the US. I really was lucky. I was looking for insects in this woody area by my house and had the diffused flash and 70-300 on the camera and out of nowhere the blue jay lands about 20 feet from me. As you can see by only getting 2 shots that he wasn't there for long.
