Florida Nature Travel Photography: Scrub Jay

Last night I arrived home from a week of Florida nature photography. 3000+ Raw files to weed through, I expect to share less than 20% of them as always due to quality control and redundancy.

Anyway, here’s a nice shot of the endemic Florida Scrub Jay, first time I’ve ever seen one.  They can be approachable, so the quality of photo depends mainly on the angle of sunlight and subject isolation.  Below is my finalized web jpeg of the capture and also a detail crop.  Photo was taken with the Tamron SP 150-600mm VC lens, the Canon EOS 60D DSLR, and my Benro carbon fiber tripod.
