Photo of the Week! Gray Jay

Nikon D90, Nikkor 300mm f2.8, ISO 500, f8, 1/200

Chad and I are planing on heading to northern Minnesota later this week or  early next week. I thought I would share a photo from our last trip up north. This Gray Jay was flying back and forth from this perch to a much larger tree. We spend a couple of hours shooting trying various in flight and perch shots. As the light got lower and lower in the sky the snow started to fall. It became more difficult by the minute to keep the shutter speeds at a level to freeze motion. Anyway, we'll keep you all posted on our adventure!
