Robert, this is miles better than the zero Blue Jay shots that I've taken. Yourself, Pondraider, and Shooz have shared some of the best Jay photos that I've seen! Michael Rumsey had a cracker a few pages back too. A good Jay shot always catches my eye.

Despite the fact that they're as common as pennies around here, I've yet to nail a perfect (to me) shot of a male Cardinal or a Blue Jay of any gender. Your photos inspire me to keep reaching for the stars :)

Spectacular, Sibil. Love how the gorget is so fiery and colorful against the blue sky.

Breathtaking. This is so good. It looked nice on my iPhone, but it's even better on a big monitor.

Just a duck - Don't have much else around to shoot unfortunately. :oops:

I've followed this thread for ages, the imagery is amazing. It has sort of inspired me to actually LOOK and photograph birds when I'm out and about with the kids.
I have posted a couple of my own shots, which are mediocre in this esteemed company, it makes me REALLY appreciate what you guys do.
Most of the images I'm in awe, not so much for the type of bird (although I do appreciate seeing species that I probably will never see in person)
but the actual capture and technical excellence/attention to detail I now see and appreciate.

Just wanted to say kudos to the images you all capture.

Geez that came out all sort of soppy, it was meant to be a "tip of the hat" and acknowledgement to what you do.

I'm going looking for more ducks............ :p

That's super. These breeding plumage males are very handsome birds.

Thanks, guys. It was taken in Andalucia, at the same site as my exceptional shot of the Eagle Owl, where it seems that every bird is too far away!
