Blue Jay taken from a trellis I setup. Applied peanut butter on the backside to attract birds. This is one of many that I was able to take using this trellis setup. I also was able to capture shots of Cardinals, Buntings, Grosbeaks, Titmouse and Chicadees.

Hello Gregory,

You really have captured the very essence of colour and pattern of this lovely bird's plummage. I like the alert pose and the composition where the bird has plenty of space into which to look.

Kind regards,
