Hi happy new year to you all
This Blue jay was taken in portugal there is quite alot of thrm but proved to be quite hardt to photograph even with a 400mm lense as they don't stay still and you can't get close enongh .Hope you like effort.
Tex stuff canon 400D with 100-400L @F9 @1/125S @ISO 400.
As always thanks for all the previous comments and votes.I look forward to all future comments good or ban

Nicely composed shot Chris. You're not wrong mate, they dont stay still for long and not so pushy as the Magpie. Well caught.

Welcome back, and a Happy New Year to you too Chris. Good shot, your persistence paid off. BTW if that's a European blue jay, they're quite different over here! (And I don't mean the Toronto baseball team....LOL)
