I like the second shot as the tail is not cut off. Great bg on this and a good little model too! No doubt waiting for some food!!!

That's sure an interesting jay -- so different from the eastern blue jay.

Pretty. Not to be picky, but just so you'll know: It is a Steller's Jay, named for the man who first discovered them.

ajosteve... wow.. you got really good eyes.. I didn't even think of the tail. I'll be sure to keep #2 on priority.


Sparker1 thanks for the history.. i can now pass on the knowledge when someone is wondering what the blue bird is @ yosemite =)

You might even saturate it some and sharpen it a bit! I tried it and it looks good!:D

Awesome AJOsteve....

saturation definately helped it out.. did you use USM.. if so.. which # did you bring it up to?

Sorry I'm in the process of learning all the PS3 techniques.

much appreciated!

I just brought it up until it had more color...didn't pay attention to the #. I'm no expert, but do add some color to all my shots!

I don't know much about bird species and so I may be wrong, but I am wondering if that is a Stellar's Jay. I happened to get a few photos earlier this year of a bird I was told was a Steller's Jay ( picture in this post: https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=676630). The colors appear different and although I am not certain the pattern on the wings are also different. I could be wrong, so take this for what it's worth.

Either way, nice photos! I have thought Yosemite would be a great place to go see.

M50D wow that stellar's jay really has a tan. I was thinking there might be different variants of the Stellar's Jay from west to east coast.

BTW... don't forget about Yosemite's Canon Workshop.

Canon is @ the yosemite this month.. I have the schedule here:

Free Photo workshops Valley Visiter Center Mon, wed, fri & sun : 9am & 1pm

thurs & sat: 10:30am & 2pm.

Evening Programs: 8:30pm mon, wd, fri & sat @ Curry Village Amphitheatre.

Thurs & Sun @ Yosemite Lodge Amphitehatre.


Free Camerea, lenses, and memory cards available for use during workshops ONLY!

This weekend June 12-13 Canon Explorers of Light Lewis Kemper will be presenting.

on June 26-27 it will be Darrell Gulin.

Space is limted.

I'll be there next week for Half Dome =)

hope this information helps

fiveFPS, perhaps there are different varieties as you say. When it comes to birds I have more questions than answers.

Thanks for the information, I am afraid I have most of my summer scheduled already, although I would like to be able to go. Have fun!
