[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Grey Jay is a fluffy, long tailed jay with small bill and no crest.Common in coniferous forests, Grey Jays are familiar camsite visitors, boldly snatching food scraps from around campfires and even from inside tents. For this photo, the noon light was very hard and burned some white parts.

Le Mésangeai du Canada est un geai duveteux, sans huppe, à queue longue et à bec court. Commun en forêts de conifères, c'est un habitué des terrains de camping qui chipe effrontément la nourriture du campeur dans sa tente comme dans son assiette.Pour cette photo-ci, comme le soleil était très haut, certaines parties de l'oiseau sont un peu cramées.

Hi Serge,
Very nice Grey Jay. Ok maybe a little bright but hey. We always called them Whisky jacks out here, I don't know why. Nice additon of the branches of this spuce. Spot on focus. Things brings back memories of hand feeding them bread in the mountains.
Well done.

Hello Serge,
A very fine portrait of a Canada Jay taken from a good lateral POV with excellent sharpness and colours though the white parts are slightly OE. A pleasing composition too.
The behaviour of these birds is similar to that our Siberian Jays.
Thanks and kind regards,

hello Serge
very nice picture with good sunlight
the colours and sharpness are very good
greeting lou

Hello Serge,
Excellent photo of this Jay in beautiful natural colours and very good sharp focus. Good DOF and POV. Great composition.

Hello Serge,

Hello Serge,
Very beautiful image albeit slightly overexposed. The background highlights contribute to that notion. But lovely to view. Well done.
