Photo of the day

Haven’t done one of these in a while and a nice gallery from my local NPR station of photos from Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition seemed like a good reason.  Also, this winning shot from Finland.

<em>High-flying jay</em> by Lasse Kurkela, Finland, Winner, 15-17 Years. Lasse Kurkela watches a Siberian jay fly to the top of a spruce tree to stash its food. Kurkela wanted to give a sense of scale in his photograph of the Siberian jay, tiny among the old-growth spruce-dominated forest. He used pieces of cheese to get the jays accustomed to his remotely controlled camera.
