Hi Peter,
I really like this bird, and I know how shy they really are. It is a pity that you don't see them that often anymore in our country.
You captured him perfectly with such great details and color. The clarity and the lighting are perfect. I just feel that part of the head is slightly OOF, or this might be the movement from eating the peanut.

Hi Peter, a very nice shot of the Jay. I like the pov which catches him in action having taken the nut. Very nice natural colours with good colour tones throughout. Clean and sharp on the plumage and eye. Makes a great compositon.

Great capture, Peter!
I like a lot this bird and the point of view that you caught of it. Marvellous sharpness, bg and great composition.
Congratulations and TFS.

Hi Peter,
I missed one recently. You do not often see them here.
Well done here. The unsharp beak is not really a nit.
Very good DOF through this supertele...
