Photo from my yesterday's walk. Quality isn't best, but I love this POV. Jay looks like mobster from cheap movie ;-) I tried make more photos, but no chance - too cold!

Today's morning - in some areas of our city -35C. Minus 35C!!! This is disaster! I'm dreaming about hot, tropical islands or rainforests.

Hi Greg,
It is indeed quite the "mobsterish" POV...;-) I made that word "mobsterish" up...;-( Please excuse my poor english..;-)
You did very well bringing us this one!
Ps I hope ya'll will warm up soon. And, how is the new telescope...;-)))

Hi Greg,
wow, it's wonderful, I love the single drops at the eyes of this nice bird, thanks for sharing

Hi Greg. Very nice portrait of the arrogant bird. The dark strips look like moustache :-)
In our town was rather hot :-). Temperature was about - 25°C today´s morning.

Jay does look like mobster Greg! Yes, MOBSTERISH, thanks to Dave for this new word!
The snow on hid feathers look good, and I love his chest feathers and the seed in his mouth.
I am so sorry about the cold for you - it isn't good for the poor or the old. Many deaths in Russia too lately from this cold spell and they don't think it will end for another month. Sorry for that news.

Hey Greg, how do you translate this from Polish :) ... I am dying to know...:
"Grzes, no faktem jest, ze patrza w jednym kierunku, i moze rzeczywiscie za Rad`em. hihihi :)
Fajnie, ze sie podoba:)
...i mam nadzieje, ze stokrotki podobaly sie Asi ;-) hihi"

I'm afraid... you always want to scare me!

Świetnie uchwycony moment, masz dobra rękę do takich ujęć, że nie wspomnę takze o refleksie. Przecież te ptaki na takim chłodzie połykaja pokarm "w mig", by przeżyć.
Świetny portret, bardzo dobra jakość i super moment.
Pozdrawiam i caekam na następne, równie udane ujęcia,

Hi Greg,
Interesting cropping, excellent POV,
very good detail and a beautiful face.
Thanks for sharing!

Hi Greh,
it look like a "Garrulus glandarius".
This was close and I think the quality is good.
The details are very good I can see the feather clearly.
Very nice POV and pose.
Vwey well done, my friend.

-35C thats cold, we have -2C just now almost summer;-))

I recognise this guy... Didn't he have a leading role in "The Sopranos" movie? :-)

Interesting POV, he looks like he caught you stealing from his money.

Regards, Petru

Hello Greg!
Excellent portrait.It's very close and
well detailed.Framing,POV,eye contact
and pose of bird are wonderful.

Dramatic closeup mugshot Greg. I like the "head-on" ;-) POV and details seen..The bit of ice & water add well. Well done my friend. Thank you!

Very Nice portrait shot Greg, great sharpness and POV, well captured too. thanks for sharing.

Hi Greg,
He does not look to happy about it being -35c eiither. Thats cold man! He looks great. The ice crystals around his head really make this shot.

bardzo fajnie pokazany ptak, super jakość zdjęcia. Fajne kolory i ostrość. Dobra robota.
Pozdr. Al.

This looks weird. I've never seen a Jay captured like that so thanks for showing something new.
I like it a lot.

Hi Greg

This is great work. Well composed with good POV. Nice colours. Sharpness, clarity and detail are all spot on. Well done. TFS.
