P950-Day Mooning with a Blue Jay

After 4p.m. in the afternoon and moon was up there on very clear, bright blue day. I was wondering if I could get a handheld at 2000mm full zoom and maintain focus. Not bad with ISO 100 and EV -1.3. Was amazed at the detail I could bring out in post.

Also got a Blue Jay in a tree nearby 1600mm. Love the feather structure.

P950 - 2000mm cropped and post processed. Sky was very light blue, so cut the exposure by 1.3 stops

P950 - 1600mm cropped. Post processed-sharpen and color. In camera sharpen was +5. Managed to lock on bird rather than twig in front of it with no problems.

I think the Moon is one of the best I've ever seen and the Blue Jay is very cute, with excellent details!
