Stellar Shot of a Stellar's Jay

© Alex Morley
I saw this shot and had to share it with you. It was taken by my friend Alex Morley, with whom I am leading a workshop on the Oregon Coast later this year.


Alex: "Stellar's Jays are found only in western North America. They are closely related to the blue jay found on the rest of the continent, but have a black head. Steller’s Jays are bold, inquisitive, intelligent, and very noisy!! And their color – unreal! They are one of my favorite birds and always remind me of the beautiful deep forests of the Pacific Northwest where I live."


Alex - I love the framing, background, focus, rain –  and catch light in the bird's eye. Truly a stellar shot!
