[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 Indian Subcontinent and further 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 Great Britain and Ireland. It is the original 'jay' after which all others are named.

Hi Zeno
A bit of noise in the bg, but a great close up.
The sharpness and dof are good in my opinion.

Hi Zeno,a common bird in my country too but taken in a very curious and funny way while bathing. Impressive sharpness on the plumage,well done! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Excellent view of this bird - great colors, and sharp with enough DOF to really make most of it visible as very sharp.
