Fairy Lake Bonsai Tree:

One hundred twenty one kilometers, (seventy miles), from the port city of Victoria, British Columbia on Vancouver Island, a plucky arboreal wonder can be found on the quiet waters of Fairy Lake.
Living up to its name, Fairy Lake is in a remote and unspoiled landscape near the town of Port Renfrew. Sticking up out of the lake’s stillness is a submerged log. Clinging to that log for dear life is a tiny Douglas fir tree. The log itself is a Douglas fir. As the stunted tree’s only source of support and nutrients, it feels like the dead tree made a sort of noble sacrifice to the tiny tree growing on it. Tourists, boaters and hikers come seeking it as a unique window into nature and rebirth.

I was trying out the Auto ISO on my new Canon EOS R6 to see how it handled noise. Shooting conditions was heavy overcast sky, late afternoon light, slight breeze from the N/W. I was shooting from my portable blind,(to keep warm), at about 5 meters, (+/- 15 feet. It was also quite cold at 5 C / 41 degrees F.) 😃

I did not use any noise reduction in the processing of this image and I am very pleased with the results!

I purchased a new blind/hide, a few days ago, and this is one of the first shots from it.

The background is the bark on a Hemlock tree.

From, Sibley Guide To Birds:

One of the most familiar winter feeder visitors across the continent. Six regional populations all share distinctively simple color patterns, with unmarked grayish to blackish head, small pink bill, and flashing white outer tail feathers.

Oregon:
Marginally the smallest junco. Dark, dull-gray hood contrasts sharply with brown back and flanks.
