What a shot!
I agree with you, they are extremely timid!
Two have begun visiting our garden and I have a couple of quite long distance shots through the window, but nothing to equal this! It is pin-sharp, the plummage details are spot on and the image is well positioned for composition, in the frame.

Beautiful close-up of this Jay. Excellent focus and sharpness. Superb colours. I have seen one this morning. Unfortunately, I cannot take pictures of birds with my camera, but they come very close to the houses here and are not so shy.

What a splendid close capture of this Jay! I haven't seen this species for ages, hopefully we'll find one when the snow settles on the ground - then then come forward for food and are less shy. You show excellent details here and very fine colours too. Well done!
TFS and cheers, Ulla

An excellent shot on this jay. Your exposure here loks great. Beautiful saturated colors. Detail is very sharp, and your control on the DOF is perfect here.

You have made an excelent portret of this bird. The image quality is so fine tjat even fine details of plumage can be well observed. The sharp image of the bird stays nicely against the background. As you have used a soft light there are many fine color tones that can be seen on the plumage as well as on background.
Thank you for sharing,

This time it's superb shot. I've seen many photos this species and your is very good. Pov, colours and sharpness are delicious.
Suprise, surprise - it's not a water bird! Instead it's a very beautiful capture of a Jay with immaculate details and wonderful colors. The face is magnificent with a beautiful eye. Plummage and wings are superb - the blue is wonderful. I love the pose, setting and composition.

What a delightful and colourful image of this Jay. This is a beautiful bird and you have captured it in a perfect close-up pose. The different coloured of layered plumage is vivid and very bright and the details of the beak and almost blue eye are displayed well. The framing and composition is great. A pleasant image with great natural colours and light. Thanks for sharing. Reading your notes about the the shyness of the bird reminds me of the exact reaction the Hurricane Thrush displays when one try to photograph it. Kind regards
