Blue Jays are often the first to arrive at the feeders in the morning but they`re very flighty birds.. I finally lucked out and got my shot..

    I love this!! He reminds me so much of our little Blue Jay (Luke) who stayed in our yard and surrounding forest for several weeks. He had a broken wing. He would come to the yard (hopping) to feed. Very nice capture of this little one. I know how hard it is to photograph a blue jay. Great job!!
