Day 113 - A stellar's jay, captured in my yard, as it was trying to get peanuts from a wreath peanut feeder. Although the light was quite bright when I took this shot, using my 400 mm lens at 1/8000th of a second, it was not bright enough to keep the image from being noisy. I have cleaned up most of the noise because I like the bird's position, but there is still a tiny bit of noise in the image. We have lots of stellar's jays in the Black Forest of Colorado where I live and a few regular blue jays. It is almost midnight and I have been processing images almost for eight hours straight. I'm going to post this and go to bed. Have a great day! Thanks to everyone for their comments on my iris and peony images, as well as my image for the "Liquid" challenge. I really appreciate the time you all take to provide feedback and support.
