Hello Mike,
Great to see you out and about again after a long hard winter. The Mexican Jay is a beautiful bird from our western states, but one we don't often see here on TN. I like the way you captured it with it's light grayish colored breast all fluffed up to the max. and displaying nice detail. Good eye contact especially at this extreme angle, and photographed in a challenging situation amongst all the criss-crossed branches.

hallo Michael
this one is very good
good sharpness and lovely naturel colours
thanks greeting lou

Bonsoir Michaël,
L'angle de prise de vue est excellent et la profondeur de champ satisfaisante mais il est regrettable que la queue du sujet ne soit pas plus détaillée.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
