The Gray Jay (Perisoreus canadensis 28-33 cm)is not a very shy bird. When he wants something he'll come very near you. My 20D was fitted with the 100-400 and this Gray Jay was so near that I couldn't fit all the Jay in my frame...Shot in Montmorency forest near Quebec city.

Hi Mario,
I really like the frame filling composition and tight crop on this shot. This allows for the amazing detail tobe shown in the plumage. Great colors throughout the tonal range. This one rocks!
