Good closeup of the Bluejay but the angle really doesn't show his colors very well. I have taken to calling Bluejays "Bully birds." This is because of their behaviour when feeding with other species of birds. They usually chase the smaller birds away so they can hoard the food.

The shot of the Peacock is beautiful. I don't think I have ever seen a Peacock phot that looked that good.

Tullio,

Both shots are quite god. I think your only problem and this is being fussy is that in the first shot I think you forgot to tell the birdie smile, look at me, and say cheese. Birds like cats seem to have a mind of their own unfortunately.

The blue colors of the peacock really stand out on my screen.

Aloha

Thanks Cal and Selvin. The Blue Jay was one of my very first shots with the FZ20. I got a lot of purple fringing on the branches. The Peacock shot on the other hand, was taken with my H1, which I'm very familiar with. Here are two other pictures (one of each), showing more of both birds.
