|This Stellar Jay is one of three that visit my porch for peanuts. I believe this one, (She?) seems to like to pose for the camera as she never seems disturbed by my presence as do the others that scream at her when she lands on the railing of the deck a mere two feet away from where I am sitting.|

The Canon 70-200 f/2.8 lens is a great piece of equipment. It will allow you to get shots under some pretty low light conditions. I see you used a shutter speed of only 1/50 of a second here with an ISO of 800. I'm assuming the light wasn't the best to work with.
You did a nice job on focus and I like the vertical composition. The jay gave you a good look as it posed in an attractive upright pose.
I am wondering about the white balance setting, as it seems to have a bit of a yellowish cast to the image. I could be totally wrong since only you know what the actual color of the leaves were in this instance.
I hope you don't mind, but I wanted to try a WS to see if I could slightly adjust the color and bring out the rich blues in it's plumage.
You're so lucky to have a Stellar Jay visit your yard. They are fairly rare around here. Nice pose, detail and composition. She sure looks different than the males. Have a good evening.
