“Setting up for this shot”—near Annette Lake—“I pinched a walnut tightly so the birds could spot but not steal it. I clearly underestimated the strength of this gray jay, which swooped in and gave a forceful tug. Luckily, I had my camera in burst mode and captured this dynamic shot of the camp robber retreating with its trophy.”
