Furry

The Blue Jays are colourful when viewed from behind but this one caught my eye even without the fancy blue wing and tail feathers. S/he almost looks furry.

Many thanks for dropping by. Glad you liked the Nuthatch pic yesterday. It's another sunny day here today, the second day in a row, and it sure is a welcome change.
Perfect shot!

Beautiful capture. I think it's fluffed up because of the cold. Great DOF.

You get such lovely focus on these shots, no exception here.

May sound silly but they don't get a winter coat of features do they? Or perhaps they just ruffle them up to keep warm. Wonderful capture.
