You are correct about the handsome guy part, I could get to like Jays if we had this Stellar in my backyard. I really like the framing, exploding pine cone, the Jay’s head turn and background coloring.
What a terrific pose Dave. You got the whole bird sharp too. What a nice head turn showing what a handsome guy this is and I love the head plumage. It’s a bit tight on the top of the frame but otherwise I like the composition. That blue color is outstanding. Matches the sky.
