Vern, I absolutely LOVE the blue jay photo. The composition, background, colour and detail all come together.Coffee table book material IMHO.

The buntings are unbelievable as well - they must have been born in a rainbow.

Superb work. Cheers, Dan

Man-O-man! There's nothing I can add that hasn't already be said. So, I am just going to enjoy looking at your gorgeous shots. Well done.

Seems like I have taken quite a few photos lately but nothing that measures up. These are in low light and slow shutter speeds.
Nothing measures up? Say what? You couldn't have better composition for #1 & #3 if you had posed them yourself! If these don't measure up, what does?? :?

Thanks, Bob-Kent-Don-Paul-Dan-Steve-and penolta! I really appreciate the kind comments from you all.

Kent, that bird spends the summers and breeds here then goes down into Mexico and points farther south for the winter. Some winter in southern Florida I think.

Don, some say that the male PB is gaudy....can you believe that?! LOL

Paul and Dan....There are a couple of the Jays here that have taught me to feed them peanuts and inexchange they will do some posing and show off the peanuts they have found. Paul, you might just have some of the PB around. Range map is good for your area.

Steve, I really appreciate that!

penolta, maybe that was a poor choice of words on my part . What's not to like about those brightly colored birds, assuming they are in focus. :G That was my main goal this summer....to get a couple of decent photos of the PB.

#1 is fabulous: good blending of color, good framing, good eye-contact and las but not the least a well-captured leisurely posture.
