2 toned bg's are my favourite especially with these colours. They make the Jay stand out so well. A superb square on capture of a very shy bird and a good interesting stump.
Also a brilliant eye and with catchlight a bonus

Excellent shot Dave. Sharp focus fair and square on the eye and face. Exposure shows great detail and colours.

Can't add anything to what has already been said, David: a very fine shot and the colour coordinated b/g works so well here in showing off the Jay to advantage.
