    editing (Nikon Capture NX2)

    -cropped the photo
    -orton effect was added
    -global color desaturation
    -added a tad of contrast boost
    -added selective color saturation to just the blue jay
    -healed out some stray branches
    -added a tad of global USM sharpening
    -used the sliders in levels to set the final exposure

    camera settings

    -Nikon D80/Nikkor 18-200mmVR
    -1/1000 second @ f/8
    -200mm
