Siberian Jay

The last day of this short photo trip we spent in old taiga forest. Our plan was to make nice pictures of Siberian Jay (Perisoreus infaustus/Taigagaai). About every hour they appeared at the scene, always threesome (a parent with 2 young birds, who knows). They were very tame; It was absolutely not necessary to stay in the hide. Conny gave us some pieces of pig fat and a cordless drill. So we were able to make our own set-up. This is the result.

* Canon EOS 7D, 70-200mm/f2.8 @ 200mm; ISO-400, f4.5, 1/320s; -0.7 stop; tripod.
