Taken on a day when I would not normally have even bothered to venture out (forecast of inclement weather) Sad However, with the encouragement and enthusiasm of Dean (WindowonWildlife) and Brian (Brian65) I came away a happy man with this lovely image, in spite of the rain! GrinGrinGrin Thanks again all for your encouraging comments. Nice to meet Jill (Wonkers) too! Grin John

Often the softer light of drizzle/dull weather can give great exposures, especially in tricky whites. Your efforts were certainly rewarded with this little gem. Beautiful! Smile

Super image John. I thoroughly enjoyed yesterday's shoot; great birds, perches and excellent company. I'm glad Alison liked the jay. Tell her my middle name is Alison, so that is another thing we have in common.
