Eurasian Jay


Photo Information
A beautiful visitor to our garden. I normally hate shots of birds on feeders or bird tables, but couldn't resist this opportunity. Couldn't get a clear shot outside as the bird was so wary and would fly off, so had to compromise with some shots through window glass.

Well captured David, of a fairly rare garden bird.

You are right, David, they really don't like being approached and are not interested in posing. I had to settle for some window shots of a visitor to our garden earlier this year but, sadly, not of a quality to match yours.
Regards,
Mike

Every day's a holiday!
