This is an excellent shot - no apologies needed - I also had many frustrations trying to get a good shot of a blue jay, and this is a very sharp, clear view of one of these fast-moving birds - a long telephot is almost essential since they move away the moment they sense a photographer near by.

Sharp picture. I recognize the difficulty of shooting this particular intelligent bird, that correctly regards people as predators.

Great work. Nicely composed. Excellent sharpness and detail. Well done!
Wonderful colors and POV on this handsome blue jay.
I especially like the catchlight in the eye that you have captured nicely.
Great photo and note, thank you for sharing.
Hmmmmm... I wonder if my red car will fit under the lilac bush in the garden, heated seats, great camouflage? :-D))

Hello Daniel! Nice crop, too! Wonderful colours, great pose, really does justice to this showy bird! They're getting noisy, waiting for the feeders to fill up for the winter. Well done!

Bonjour Daniel, vous avez reussi une superbe photo de Geais, bravo!! C'est un animal extrémement méfiant et qui se laisse difficilement approcher. Moi, je n'ai pas encore réussi !! Les couleurs sont belles et la position de l'animal agreable à l'oeil. Peut être rogner un peu plus à droite pour decentrer la bête ? Mes félicitations Didier.

For not being close enough and having to crop this photo you have done darn well. If I can take a shot like this, even with my long lenses, I would be too happy.
Good composition, excellent colours, spot-on DOF with great details on the bird, and the exposure were well managed.
Good work and TFS.
