Thirsty Juvenile Stellar's

We’ve been having record breaking hot weather and it’s caused quite the uptick in critters coming in for a drink. I got this juvenile Stellar’s Jay slaking its thirst this morning.

Nice light here and I like the textures it brings up in the feathers.

Lovely lighting, Dave. The stellar seems to be enjoying the sunrise also. Nicely seen.
