Beautiful pic, Mary...you have that dSLR working a treat!
Mary MacADNski: Not at all, Ray. The manual is available only on disc and I usually wear out my manual. Also I've not had a spare moment.
And you've captured it really, really beautifully, Mary!!
Mary MacADNski: It was such a flat, grey day.
Wonderful capture Mary... we only see Blue Jays after November up here and they stay through the winter....petersmile
Mary MacADNski: That's interesting. You must get other jays though.

A very fine image Mary. He looks cold!
Mary MacADNski: I do think it was during the cold spell we had.
This is an excellent picture of a fine little bird Mary, Natural History at its best.
Mary MacADNski: Thanks. I have one of a more normal looking colours later.
This is a fabulous capture, Mary. He shows up so crisp and clear against that wonderful back light. A keeper for sure!
Mary MacADNski: Everything was grey that day.
He looks as cold as he probably felt Mary
Mary MacADNski: They, and the other winter birds, rarely seem to mind the weather.
Superb Mary. You seem having your new camera on hand!
Mary MacADNski: Yes, I wish I had it's manual.
I see you are taking advantage of your winter opportunities...
Mary MacADNski: A few shots here and there.

What a beauty. You have positioned this very well; no distrractions distractions directly behind the bird. I wonder what they make of the cold?
Mary MacADNski: They don't seem to mind it. None of the winter birds do.
The famous Blue Jay! Excellent capture! Mary. I love it!
