Perfect timing, and the colours standing out so well against the snow, love the photo with feathers ruffled behind his head, such a startled look. Print and frame for sure, Cheers, Jean.

What fun! Those Blue Jays really stand out in the snow and their peanuts look a little frosty :) Great shots as always Brian.

They sure are little piggies. Great shots Brian!

Dave said...

I wonder how many people take those birds for granted? We don't get them this side of the water, but how beautiful are they!! Superb shades of blue with lovely distinctive markings, and of course set off against the snowy backdrop.... perfect

Beautiful bright blues. Yep, if you want to enJOY blue jays, just throw out some peanuts.

Gunilla Bäck said...

They're beautiful. So different from our jays.

Ida said...

These are breathtaking. Look at the amazing color on that bird.

barbara l. hale said...

Great series! Yeah, they rival squirrels for grabbing all the gusto.

Marika said...

How beautiful bird! Seems so sweet holding the nut ☺

edenhills said...

These are such great shots! I might have to sacrifice some of my goats' peanuts for the jays!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Isn't he beautiful!! And yes, a little piggish, but what wonderful entertainment value for peanuts!

MTWaggin said...

I admit it, I read this post at work and I swear, I think I may have "snorted" I was laughing so much. They look so proud of themselves.

Jen said...

His blue feathers are so vibrantly beautiful against the snow. Nice!
