[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Stellar Jays here are now in nest and have become quiet and quite reclusive except for this one that seems to have befriended me from the onset of my moving into the apartments where we live. He poses and what you may call purrs for a bird to get my attention so I will come out and feed him peanuts, and in so doing, I in turn am allowed to capture his image.

Beautiful blue bird, Steven.
This is a very impressive point of view that gives perfect impression of the colors on it.

Hello Steven,
I would be totally thrilled to capture such a beautiful Stellar Jay image. The blue is so vivid and the detail is super sharp. I have seen this bird a few times while on our western visits, but never got near as nice of a shot as this. A real treat to us birders.

Hi Steven

You succeeded to attract my attention to a so beautiful blue bird, very nice composition, nice blurring BG, nice POV very good DOF.
