Shot few days when visiting my wife's parents. They feed the birds.
Luckily I had my camera with me so I took some shots of this Jay.
D2Hs, 200-500m f/5.6
1/160, ISO-1600, f/5.6, handheld, VR-ON @480mm.

Please click on the image for uncompressed view, thank you.

A beautiful capture of this jay with nice detail and great BG. I wish the seed wasn’t visible, but I do like the bird. One of my nemesis birds. I have never gotten a good shot of them, despite being around them a lot.

Beautiful detail of the plumage, such lovely colour and iridescence with that gorgeous blue, Ludo!

Gorgeous blues and details- we don't see this bird on the East Coast. I don't mind the corn but wonder if you could tone it down a bit, so it would be less distracting. Nice expression on the bird.

Ludo, splendid details and colors captured on this handsome bird, cute with the bit of head toss with crest up.  The blue is amazing.

Beautiful picture - same sentiments as noted by all, I tried zooming into the picture and take an inch of the bottom and the image is elevated to the next level. I still luv it!
