Hi Mikael
Beautiful bird and beautiful photo. It looks like an angel. Perfect OOF background, great colors (grey vs orange) I like it very much

Hej Micke,
This is one of my favourites too! I like the way you took it with a bit of OOF snow in the BG to make it look like a halo.
Nice sharp and beautifully exposed portrait of a Siberian Jay. You are lucky to have them near Gävle!
En riktig goding!

Hi Mikael

Another exceptional close-up from you!
The details are impeccable and the colors retain by your spot-on exposure are also lovely. I also like your POV and how well that allowed you to overlap the jay with the brighter spot in the BG...that really kicks the composition up!

Bravo and TFS

Harika netlik ve detaylar, BG ve ışık büyüleyici olmuş.

Hello Mikael,
This photo goes straight in my favorites !
I like the composition with a spotlight just behind the head of your Siberian jay
Very good focus too with a nice catchlight in the eye
Well done

Hallo Mikael
What a handsome bird. You captured this fine looking bird in a wonderful pose showing off his nice profile, the beautiful colours and finely detailed plumage. The pose against the circled blue background is excellent, and the combination of colours is great. Thanks for your valuable input on the site.
Best regards.
