Jay

By Mike_Smith
Thankyou to Anglingandy's UA, on my last upload always very welcome.
Today i have another Jay hope you like him, beautiful birds these considering they are from the crow family

Although they are the most colourful members of the crow family, jays are actually quite difficult to see. They are shy woodland birds, rarely moving far from cover. The screaming call usually lets you know a jay is about and it is usually given when a bird is on the move, so watch for a bird flying between the trees with its distinctive flash of white on the rump. Jays are famous for their acorn feeding habits and in the autumn you may see them burying acorns for retrieving later in the winter.

An interesting and informative pre-narrative supported by a wonderful capture of this rather handsome Jay. Both colour and detail are wonderfully crisp and fresh, whilst the space too the right of the bird allows one to naturally follow the birds line of vision. Good use of depth of field allowing the background to softly blur which in turn provides a sharper edge to the subject.
