It was sunny today. Yay for the sun and yay for having a day bright enough to take a few pictures. Just as I picked up the camera, a Red-bellied Woodpecker and a Blue Jay met and ultimately shared the feeder. These are two highly aggressive birds, though the blue jay is actually a bit bigger of the two, the woodpecker has a far more potent beak.
And here they are. Most of the Blue Jay pictures were taken with no processing. The combination of both birds got a bit more sun, which is a problem shooting out this window. Until the afternoon, there’s a lot of solar glare, but you can clearly see the birds well. You need a slower lens and maybe a filter.
There’s a big storm tomorrow night and Monday morning so grab the pictures now!
