Cowering Jay

By johnjo58
Great to get into the hide today and just loved the wonderful autumnal tones. Very happy to capture this Jay cowering as a Jackdaw flew past.These are one of my favourites although really tough to photograph ( the slightest twitch of the lens or over noisy camera and they are off).

As ever thanks for taking a look and for your attention on previous uploads.

Superbly detailed capture, David - lovely plumage tones and patterning and fine eye. Beautiful luminous light and softly blurred bg colours.
Superbly captured David, loving those autumnal tones in the backdrop.

Bloody Hell mate, I can't believe you nailed one of these and with a fabulous BG Tongue I failed miserably at the weekend Sad Excellent capture.
