[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Eurasian Jay (Garrulus glandarius) is a species of bird occurring over a vast region from Western Europe and north-west Africa to the eastern seaboard of Asia and down into south-east Asia. Across its vast range, several very distinct racial forms have evolved to look very different from each other, especially when forms at the extremes of its range are compared.

The bird is called jay, without any epithets, by English speakers in Britain and Ireland.

Hello Siegfried ,
very beautiful presentation of this bird in sharpness and beauty. The softness of the feathers is so smooth and lovely. Very pleasant presentation with tree branches make a natural framing.


Hello Siggi,

This is a bird that gradually is disappearing from my place, and I have no idea why!
That is a pity for many reasons, also because it is a great creature to have around...
This is a fine portrait with good details, the special pattern in the wings comes out very well!
