I've noticed that these Jays stand on their claws (Talons ?) more than other birds I've observed.

Thanks for looking.

Hey, Jim..

I love the action-stopping capture you got

Looks, like you may have used a flash, to help with that...did you?

This is a technique I haven't yet explored, but intent to....if I am right about your use of flash, do you have any tips that might make my venture into similar shots less painful?

Thanks, in advance, for your advice.

Thank you everyone for your comments. I've never had this many on one of my photos before.

Thanks Kita but I am not the one yet to give tips. All I can say is that I always use my external flash when there is strong back lighting on my subject.
