This beautiful Blue Jay landed on the bench, struck this pose, then flew off. I was lucky to get this photo! Besides the Blue Jay, I really like the bokeh.

I appreciate the spotlight, courtesy of the JPG staff - thank you!!!

    Andrea, the Blue Jay was at the zoo when Lori & I went together. We have a lot of Blue Jays around our house so I hope to get photos of them also ... amazing, one just landed in the front yard when I looked up but it flew off fast. You have to be in the right spot at the right time to capture those quick moving birds! The Blue Jay at the zoo landed, posed and was off again quickly. I felt lucky to get this photo : ) I am thrilled to get the spotlight from JPG!
