About This Image

steller's jay as he comes in to land near the suet feeder beside the driveway. You can see from his beak that he's been at the suet before :)
Captured from the open front window.

Great shot Alandra. I love the comp and I think the perch and twigs add to the photo, I'm glad you left it in. It's perfect just the way it is. Another fabulous shot for your collection! ~Shawna

thankyou both, also, Steve and Carol. You wonder how the birds can land without even "looking" to find the perches :)

thanks for the nice comments, Doug. Initially thought perhaps the curved part of the "perch" was distracting, so late last night attempted to remove it, then went further and further, wondering how the jay would look, minus the perch :) Didn't like my efforts, so ended up leaving the whole thing there. Also tried removing the twigs in the corner, but decided against that too. Now am glad I left it all there :)

Nice action shot of the pretty jaybird. Carol

Another stunning image Alandra! I particularly like the stationary body and the frantic feet! And the blue of the bird against the yellow autumn leaves is very satisfying.
