Coming Out!

By teocali
Our shy garden visitor, a Jay (Garrulus glandarius), was actually tempted to come down into the open from the trees yesterday, perching for a very brief moment on a rotten branch I had placed in front of the reddened foliage of our Japanese Acer shrub. Had he chosen to perch further to the right, the background would have been completely red, but that is wildlife for you!

Thank you all so much for your great support of yesterday's upload - always greatly appreciated Smile

Magnificent !! I am glad he did not go further right because in my opinion the green turning into red adds to the beauty of the photo Smile

Outstanding Image Sylvia - just enough of the Acer's colour to compliment the blush of pink in the plumage...
