Taken in Turkey, there was a bit of a commotion from one of the birds because his freind wasn't sharing his crisp with anyone. He realised after he had shreiked for ages that there was plenty to go around.
Taken on Nikon D70 using the P setting at 200 iso. Saturated slightly using CS.

Great shot Keith - A very melodramatic feel from our feathered friends, although slightly saturated the colourisation looks blob on. - click

This is a very well made image---I like the sense of movement one can see in the smaller bird!

kjm Re: your question relating to drop shadow's.
I use photoshop 7 so these details relate to that program. Drop shadows look best on a white background or else they look unnatural. The point of a drop shadow is to give the image the look of hanging on the wall in a gallery. Remember to add a pixel stroke (line) before adding the drop shadow. Rename background layer by double clicking on it in the Layers Pallet and saying OK to the new name. Double click on layer and choose Layer Style > Drop Shadow Style. Create your angle, opacity, distance, spread, size of shadow. Add canvas space to the image in the directions of the drop shadow that is slightly greater than the size of the shadow (Canvas menu is under Image > Canvas Size). The drop shadow will then appear in that added canvas area. Hope that helps. Regards Keith

Superb capture - get jays in our back garden sometimes but one glimpse of me and they're off - very timid - excellent composition and timing with just enough sense of movement.

Brilliant shot Keith . My mum has a family of jays that visit her garden but they are never there when I visit (could be something to do with a 9 year old son & 1 yr old black cat that go with me!)
I live in hope...
