    I woke up this morning and saw the Jays sharing the yard with squirrels...

    Two nice captures James.
    I never see anything in my garden like this, even though I live in the country.
    Cheers

    Both very good and great aspect - do you like laying down on the grass or do you just get your knees dirty?

    Very nicely done, James. The perspective, the color, DOF. Fun shots!

    Thank you Terri it was fun morning.
    Thanks L.Paul . You hit the nail on the head, I will crawl ,lay, sit, kneel for that low perspective. My neighbors probably think I am crazy. I spent 1 hour layed out in lawn waiting for the Jay and Squirrel to come back. Bobo showed me the value of that low angle perspective,& I love it . I will always try to get lower than the animals eyes.Unless its a snake.

    Thank you Harvey I am glad you liked.

    Thank you John.

    James. I like your sqirrel and jay. Definitely worth lying on your belly - as long as you don't fall asleep like I would.

    There is a bit of a yellowish cast to the images that you might want to correct. You can use the white balance control in Photoshop.

    Funny that you say that Ken, sometimes I go into the woods before dawn sit at the base of a tree and nap. I know that sounds crazy but when I was younger I got quite comfortable doing that while hunting. You would be amazed how much game will walk right up to you if your asleep. Worked well for hunting works well for photography. I will check out the yellow glow. Thank you.
