Follow up shot to yesterdays upload of a Jay, here's another one I'm afraid. As yesterdays upload this was taken in very poor light with ISO800 and a low shutter speed, in this case just 1/80sec......Don't you just hate this time of the year?....Roll on the spring!

Turned out good despite the light. Good detail and colour in the Jay. This time of year is pretty miserable for us fotofanatics though.
Cheers

A real cracker Ade. You did well to catch this one sitting still for long. Very skittish birds.

Hi Ade, I'd never guess about the high ISO. This is an awesome bird that I've never seen before. Even with no handicap, this is a good one.
