I took a lot of photos. Most were not crisp enough despite the high shutter speed and lots of light. None of my Bluejay shots were usable. Frustrating. My goal is to capture the more colorful (skittish) birds and also birds in flight.
I had my tripod with me but wildlife doesn’t wait for you to get set up. I’ll have to experiment with some kind of blind or sitting/laying long enough for the birds and things to chill out. The Vireos don’t mess around. They stick around just long enough to scope you out, jumping to higher tree branches the whole time, and then they vacate the area for a while.
Oh. Still learning my way around Lightroom 4 as you’ll notice in some of the photos.
Anyway, enjoy. Any photo contest winners in this batch? Meh.
Actually, here’s the official info.
