I was trying out a new flash for the first time in my house, when I saw this jay outside on a row of shrubs in our backyard (Penticton, BC Canada). I quickly slid open the patio door and took this shot. Looking at the exif data later, I realized that the flash hadn’t gone off after all, but the rich colours of the bird and setting made up for that !
