Hi Ike,

The branches and the leaves are framing well the bird. The point of view is showing with precision the details and colors of the Jay. The late afternoon light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.


Hi Ike,
An intersting shot of this Jay. Good detal and sharpness. Regards,

Hello Ike,

We have them here too, but for some reason I don't think we see them as often as before!
A colourful and lovely bird, captured with accurate focus and nicely framed by blurry foliage...
