06-APR-2004 Ron Lutz II


Schenely Park, PA

I went for a short stroll in the park today but I had some trouble focusing on taking a photo, as I am worried about one of my cats. She has developed a serious inner ear malfunction and can’t stand up with out falling over. I was up all last night tending to her needs…

Anyway, I did spot this Blue Jay, Cyanocitta cristata, while walking. I’ll try not to fill my April gallery with birdshots, but I liked this one so…

(The funny thing is, when I first left for my walk I heard a Blue Jay call and I thought it would be nice to eventually get a good shot of one.)

Canon EOS 10D ,Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM
1/350s f/4.0 at 200.0mm iso100 full exif

other sizes: small medium original

Extraordinary shot. What extraordinary blues. As said, the 70-200 IS USM in the best hands !

This is fabulous. I've been trying like mad to get a good blue jay shot but never get nice saturated blues like this. Great catch!

Nice capture.

Very very nice, sharp details, wonderful color. How close did you get to the blue jay?

Beautiful--I love the blues and grays.

Nice, Ron. I've been trying, unsuccessfully, to catch the blue jay or the cardinal that visits the tree outside my office window.

Really wonderful blues here ... nicely done.

Don't appologize for this--it's very good! Don't worry too much, cats are pretty resiliant.
