Very well done. As a boy we used to call something else a blue angel - lol.

Could you describe your PP here a bit? Thx!

-cropped the photo
-orton effect was added
-global color desaturation
-added a tad of contrast boost
-added selective color saturation to just the blue jay
-healed out some stray branches

-used the sliders in levels to set the final exposure

camera settings
