Peanut Grabber!
aka Blue Jay
Cyanocitta cristata. 12 inches. male and female appear the same

The Blue Jay is a strong, swift and huge bird often seen at backyard feeders. His coming in to land announcement (screaming like a hawk) will scatter all the smaller birds. This one dropped in and grabbed his prize and was gone in a flash--

Thank You for your interest in the "Moss Spores" macro--- I appreciated your comments re the framing ---and votes, comments and awards --as always--are very pleasing!
