Like a child

Uploaded: April 06, 2010


This young blue jay is like a child in a play pool of water. He plunged in face down rubbing his chest to the bottom; then, rolled around making a big splash before he stood up (here) and prepared to get out.

I'm open for ideas of putting several captures into a single image...following his actions over several seconds, but in one format. I have the images, just don't know how to pull it off.

Here the water was created with the Flood plug-in in Photoshop, using Creative techniques taught by Jim Zuckerman.

Exif: F Number: 6.3, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/1600 seconds, Flash: fired, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 1600, White balance: Manual white balance, FocalLength: 420.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS 50D
