Common Jay

By Gezina  
Thank you so much for your complimenary comments on the "Crowned Lapwing (plover) upload and especially to Ron for his user award - so much appreciated.
Now this flippen woodland bird might be common but boy did I have a job to land a shot worth uploading - finally managed to get a shot of a Jay the other day in late afternoon sunlight against quite a tricky b/g - I'm so pleased to add this timid bird to my p/f - hope you like it too - Ina

Well, I said I thought your previous upload was one of your best, Ina, but I have to say this equals it! A stunning capture, and just has to be viewed large to appreciate the gorgeous detail and quality.
