Green Jay vs. Bee

This Green Jay was distracted by a bee doing a fly-by, which made for an interesting photo.

Taken with Canon 1DX and Canon 500mm F4 IS II lens mounted on tripod with Wimberley II gimbal head

Aperture priority, 1/800 sec @ F8, ISO 1600, evaluative metering, +1/3 exposure compensation, 500mm

    • Thanks Stephen. There were lots of bees flying around and took this shot as the Green Jay turned his head.

    • Thanks Belinda. There were tons of Green Jays, as always, at Santa Clara Ranch. The bees flying around were an added interest on this trip.
