Very nice shot. The arbour frames him beautifully and the background bokeh provides a very nice colour palette to contrast his own colour.

I just love the contrast of his feathers with the muted background. lovely (as always :)). But not as cute as Ethel ;)

Beautiful shot, Donna! I had never even heard of a Steller's Jay until a few years ago when I was in S.E. Alaska. Apparently Steller was an explorer who pretty much named everything after himself. :shrug:

Beautiful capture Donna. These are one of my fave birds...cheeky little creatures. :)

Thanks asnow and casil :) ... yeah , thier attitude makes them one of my favorites too . There not afraid to voice there opinion and I like that they mimic other birds and creatures sometimes .... One was on our deck making squirl calls the other day ... We have a really comical war going on between the Jays and a devilish little red squirl at our feeders .

This is a beauty Donna. Perfect framing with that arbour, showing off the subject so well.
