Hi Peter,
only a word,MARVELOUS!!

Hi Peter,
This is a magnificent picture!
I'm pleasingly impressed by the high quality of this image, the sharpness of the bird are impressive, plenty of clear details on the feathers, legs and beak.
The lighting on the subject gets the better of it.
And this background works so well for this image, with its nicely blurred flowers and leaves, in such beautiful way.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Hi Peter,
A beautiful capture of this beautiful bird, super composition, Bg and details.

Hej Peter,
Excellent capture of the Siberian jay with a fine pose, superb lighting, sharpness and set in a pleasing composition. The jay is sharp enough to show it well against the slightly distracting BG.
Nice shot: I hope to photograph lavskrikan next year.

Hi Peter,
What a stunner. The pose and the details in the bird are awesome. I love your OOF BG as well. It has some wonderful warm colors and also shows some of the outlines of the trees and foilage.

Hello Peter,
Excellent photo with perfect details and fantastic DOF and warm-coloured BG. The light is superb. Great composition. The pose of the bird is very special. High quality!

Hello Peter amazing shot very fine work cant fault it tfs adding to my fav rgds Necip.

What a charming photo this is. I've not seen this large headed bird before. I love the what he is holding onto that little nub of wood... doesn't look real secure. The details are wonderful and the out of focus background is quite lovely with all its soft colors.

Hej Peter,

Han poserar mycket snyggt och står ut bra från bakgrunden.
Fint ljus, vackra färger och skärpan samt detaljerna suberba.
Mycket vacker bild.
