Bonjour Mario,
Le coquin il attire les oiseaux avec des friandises ;-) Ce Geai bleu est vraiment magnifique et il méritait bien une récompense. Netteté, couleurs et luminosité sont excellentes. Pour chipoter : dommage pour la brindille devant la queue ;-)
Compliments et merci pour le plaisir des yeux.

Hi Mario

Lovely close up shot of the Blue Jay and well worth the price of a few nuts, nicely presented composition and a fine pose, the feather detail is excellent with very nice colours and lighting too.

TFS Hil :o)

Hi Mario,
A delighful image!
I like the great light there, and all the beautiful details it let you got on this bird.
You made and incredible good composition with the peanuts, flowers, grasses and the bird.
The pose of the bird couldn't be any better.
The tiny blue line at the frame works pretty well and enhance the visual experience.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,
