No, I very very slow. The camera is ready for that exposure because I would have made a test before, maybe just the branches. I could also have made another exposure test under the leaves in the shades, just in case.
I actually chuckled when I saw this one. Good choice on the title, and I must say it's an absolutely beautiful picture. The vibrant green background really picks out the whites on this young Jay, while the sticks work wonders for dividing the picture right before my very eyes. ^^ I love it.
