Fine capture! The only distraction is the blur in front of the branch, but not much could be done about that. I enjoyed seeing this relative of our local Jays.

Nice capture...looks like you've gone big time on the equipment front! NIce BG and good sharpness with the bird containing excellent detail. Not too sure about the metal(?) object at the bottom in the FG...the highlights on it are a bit distracting.

Alla fine è arrivata anche lei alla portata del tuo tele.
Complimenti, peccato solo che fosse in ombra. Come dice angelo però i dettagli sono bellissimi.
TFS, ciao, Emanuele

Very well captured bird.
Nice crisp colors and details.
non saluto nè te, nè l'altro mio EX amico di gela!
This is a beautiful shot of a bird that I don't know about. I like its pose, light in its eyes, exposure, colors and compo. Well done MF and have a good Holidays season ;)

I do like this image.
Especially in terms of colors here. The pose of the bird is almost the one a good painter could use.
Though it has to be said I'm a bit puzzled about the blurred 'thing' in the foreground.

Excellent capture of the European Jay with excellent sharpness and presentation.
You must feel inspired to get a Canon ID yourself and become a professional nature photographer!
Have a good Holiday season!

I know this bird as "vlaamse gaai, Garrulus glandarius Eurasian Jay" < Flemish/Dutch, Latin, English names >
I am a wee surprised that no-one has pointed these names out.
Great shot that shows the nature of this "beastie"... An intelligent bird that is not to shy, yet very cagey.
A great shot, with wonderful details For the presentation I would have chosen a tighter crop to get rid of some of the less attractive "debris". I would avoid cloning though; it is not the only option! Ciao, Jay
PS I will post WS when I get a new quota... ;)
