Dear TL friends, since last week an Eurasian Jay vistis us daily and he loves our garden bank. May be, he will sit down one day on the little pillow beside him:-)))) I captured him through the window.He is very shy.
Thank you for your visit and for your critics.
Regards Rose

Hi Rose

I like the reflection of the water droplets on the profiled birds beak. Good sharpness & the diagonal axis of its body adds tension & dynamism. The salmon pink & blue colours of the bird are eyecatching. Tfs!

Hi Rose.

Looks like your having great fun with it, this is another superb image. The detail of the blue and black cheque wing brings all alive here, love his feet, needs clippers lol. TFS

Gorgeous photo Rose! I love all the blues and greens in this! Super sharpness and I like that light reflection that illuminates the bird!

Hi Rose,
A sharp capture of this lovely bird posing to you. Perfect light and sharpness. An interesting non-habitat place for a bird to land!
Well done,

Hello Rose, an excellent shot of the Jay.Sharp focus on the bird and a good bokeh.
Well presented.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Wow! I just realized that there are so many different types of jays, I photographed one in Bryce Canyon. Exceellent capture of this one. Sharp details and wonderful colors. Very well done, tfs.

A razor-sharp shot with superb details and colors, Rose!

The light and exposure are well done, and clarity is nice too.
I like the use of elegant frame which does enhance the overall contrast and charm in the picture.
Well done!

Hi Rose,
This is an amazing shot. So clear and full of details that one almost think that this was a stuffed bird set up for the photo!

Bonsoir Rose,

Pretty birdy. Good sharpness and nice exposure. I am sure you would have prefer the same shot on a branch, but you adapted quickly to the situation and choose a title that fit the image. I hope you will have the chance to shoot him again and you will share the result with us. Nice contribution and TFS.


Hi Rose,
Beautiful Eurasian Jay well taken here,
good sharpness and beautiful colors of the bird,
lovely pose too,

A beautiful shot of an unusual bird (at least in Canada) excellent clarity and colour. Nice job. You appear to have an ideally placed window for bird watching.
