This Gray Jay looks like she’s a regal royal staring down at her subjects with her long gray cape flowing behind her.
(In reality, a man was eating another Gray Jay and this one swooped in from behind and grabbed the cheetos out of his hand. This was the shot a split section before… she’s really plotting a sneak attack).
Taking shots of Gray Jays reminds me of when I was a photographer’s assistant. He would always sigh when the bride walked out in a super pure white dress because it meant that he would have to fight the white balance the whole time. I felt the same trying to take shots of these birds, but they wouldn’t sit still like a bridal party would. 😉
