One of the joys of digitizing old photos is coming across old shots that you remember but haven’t seen in a long time. Last night I found a bunch of poorly stored and unorganized negatives. While looking through about the first half of them I found these two shots I always loved of a stellar jay taken in the Olympic National Park back in the mid 90s. I’ve never been a big wildlife photographer but this bird made it really simply by just sitting there and posing. Focus was a bit softer than I’d like but not too off.
If you think blue jays are pretty, you’ve not seen anything until you’ve seen a stellar jay.
