Wonderful composition with a great low POV.The isolation from the BG is great and the detail in the plumage is excellent (on my screen at least). I think you have shown the pluage off to great advantage.

Nice cpature and great details on the bird..
I like the colors and the POV you got here..
this is a great shot of a Jay!
Much better than I have managed: a tiny speck in the frame :)
+++ As James said the low-down eye-level POV is very effective.
The DOF is pretty good and blurs the BG well.
Bright colours and good lighting... the blue wing feathers stand out well but I think they could be more vivid so I did a workshop... I hope you don't mind!
--- Nothing, other than the slightly dull blue feathers :)

I agree concerning the chances one gets to photograph these birds...
Still on my wish list:-)
Nice photograph; good sharpness, good pose and very good light!
One of the best Jay photo's I have seen.
It's all there, colour, definition, sharpness, pose, DOF and composition.
You now have a lot to live up to.
Very well done. I wish it was in my album.

Hi Debz. I know what you mean as i have tried to get a good shot of this bird many times. You have done a fine job with this one, i like the pose with the way its head is turned around. good colours. and fine detail. well done TFS. good notes too.
Fantastic photo of this Jay. Very nice soft colours and excellent details. The DOF is great. Very good low POV. Well composed.
Haha, I really loved this shot of yours because the cuttie looks so serious from it's face but very cute looking!
perfect sharpness, vivid colour and details to enjoy!
thanks for the wonderful notes too

Hello Deborah, what a beautiful and colourful bird that you captured. The depth of field is precise, it is very sharp and I like the small movement of the legs, giving movement. Thank you!

Sounds just like normal stellar jays here. Hard to photograph.
You managed this with real good focus. Sunlight was working with you too. Never have seen a jay like this before, so TFS. Sorry not around too much Deborah. Soon. Have a nice week. D
Loved both, your notes and image.
You managed to get this one with a BEAUTIFUL B/G.
The BLUE of the flight feathers is stricking.
Your Canadian pal,
Come for a visit???? to COLD Canada???

I've found my jays here to be quite shy & cautious as well. Far fewer opportunities to get a shot than many other birds..
Excellent detail, color, DOF, and you managed the ambient light well with great exposure.
I like this POV, with the bird looking at you too :)
Probably a bit less space right would be better IMHO.

I think your depth of field is quite good considering the focal length. The foreground and the bird are very sharp. Color looks natural and the exposure is perfect. I like the eye contact.
