Common murres at Yaquina Head, Oregon


Click on either photo to see a larger version on my SmugMug site -- you really get an appreciation for the number of birds packed into such a small space. 

The birds are common murres. I shot the photo at the Yaquina Head light house on the Oregon coast. If you visit, walk out to the light house and look down. 

Here's a heavily cropped version of another photo: 


Camera & Settings: both photos were taken with my Nikon D5100 and a Nikon 70-300 telephoto lens. Nothing special about the settings otherwise -- I tried to use a high shutter speed to reduce camera shake because it was very breezy.
