Took a suggestion to focus manually on edge of feeder to capture birds as they fly-in. But, I just did not have enough light to capture birds in flight. So I stood behind the camera holding the flash in one hand and the remote in the other. The blue jay kept his eye on me; fascinated.


Bokeh plug-in and Noise Ninja added after masking with pen tool.
