This shot is just stunning Gary, they are always a extremely attractive bird. You have got a very nicely detail, sharp clean shot here and the background is totally OOF and clean. Brilliant, wish it hadn't turned it's head quite as much, perfection.


Cheers Wayne :D

I think it must be a Norwegian Blue, but it is only sleeping.

Kent County, New Brunswick, CANADA
has to be one of the world's best kept secret. It is bordered by the sea to the east and is made up of small villages, farms, forest, brooks and rivers. I have lived here all my life and
would recommend it to anyone.

Very sharp (200mm/1.4x + tripod + USM ?), true colours, nice bokeh and excellent capture.
The missing tail kinda takes a wee bit away from such an excellent photo. ;)

Wonderful detail Gary. Hopefully I'll get a clear close-up shot of a Bluejay this fall or winter.

With the leaves now almost all gone these guys sure are a refreshing splash of colour. You've captured this Jay very well, Gary.
