As averse as I am to bluejays and their hair-ripping ways, I have to admit that they are handsome creatures and that these are stunning captures.
Especially the middle one, it's epic!!

I took some blue jay pics recently. Yours are better than mine.

Kathy said...

We have lots of blue jays here but they never stay long enough in one place to get a photo - at least for me. Maybe all your snow slows them down. These are super shots.

Your captures of birds (and everything else) are so awesome -- always!! Talk about "up close and personal"!! Such mind blowing detail and such a beautiful way to start the day -- any day! Hope you and the birds have a great weekend!!

Great pictures of the Blue Jay. They are such beautiful birds. I like the way he is thinking (listening?) in the first photo.

What a beautiful bird - the colours are stunning - our jays in the UK are quite colourful - they have quite a lot of pink markings - I will try and get a shot of one - Happy Valentines - Jane UK

I really like the one 'in action'!

maryaustria said...

Such a beautiful bird! I love the second shot!

Ginny said...

Oh my, these are WONDERFUL! The flying shot is amazing, his wing tips are just touching the snow and the wings are fanned out so beautifully! And the first shot is so perfect, I love his eye! A splendid series!

Giga said...

Beautiful bird, and great pictures. Regards.

Chandra Eswaran said...

They are such pretty birds!

edenhills said...

Love the action shot! I set peanuts out today, but nobody seems to have found them yet.

Jack said...

Jays are pretty opportunistic, aren't they?

Ruth Hiebert said...

I love that first shot. The tilt of the Blue Jay's head makes it exceptional.

Felicia said...

what a handsome fellow he is.

Rose said...

Fabulous captures...love the one with wings showing! (Outspread, I guess you would say.)

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

I think a peanut would be like hitting the jackpot for a bird.

Kay said...

Your jays are much showier than ours on the west coast. The colors are gorgeous and those wings look like stained glass!

Mari said...

Ahhh there pictures are perfect, I like the 2nd picture very much.

Marie said...

Stunning shots! Love his flayed feathers, and the way he looks with his rich blue color against the white snow!

Saun said...

Wow Great shots ! Love'em

Laura said...

What a handsome guy Tina… I love the way you've captured his beautifully patterned feathers.

kelley jensen said...
