BLUE JAY - GEAI BLEU - Cyanocitta cristata

Its food is sought both on the ground and in trees and includes virtually all known types of plant and animal sources, such as acorns and beech mast, weed seeds, grain, fruits and other berries, peanuts, bread, meat, eggs and nestlings, small invertebrates of many types, scraps in town parks and bird-table food. Blue jays will also raid other birds' nests to attack their young.

Hi Claude,

What exquisite lighting! The Bluejay looks marvelous looking down at the stump. Superb colors and details. The black background sets the shot off beautifully.

Bonjour Claude,

Bravo pour cette jolie composition, sans oublier de mentionner le très bel éclairage qui permet au geai bleu de très bien se détacher du background. Bon travail!


Hi Claude,
Magnificent this "dark" image of the blue jay!
I like very much the way the dark background stand out the beauty of this bird, and at the same time produces a very dramatic mood here.
Beautiful colours and nice details all over here.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Salut Claude,
Je n'ai pas encore réussi à n'en photographier un :(
Merci de partager celui-ci. Excellente composition, le bleu ressort bien.

salut Claude

quelle belle et superbe photographie du geai bleu,
les couleurs sont naturelles et belles avec d'excellents détails,
c'est surtout ce background que j'aimes, ça me rappel il y a
très très longtemps en 88-89 j'avais suivis des cours de
photomécanique (photolithographie), l'arrière plan
de ta belle image me fait rappeler les rideaux des chambres noirs
de ces caméra de reproduction
(en tons de gris et séparation des couleurs)
(c'était des dinosaures)

merci beaucoup pour le partage de cette belle photo


hello claude,

Hi Claude.
Beautiful light coming in on the Jay makes an outstanding image, beautifully seen, exposed and taken. Superb sharpness, colour and detail. His perch makes a wonderful setting for him with the light showing up some of the wood and greenery.

Salut Claude
Belle presentation de ce Geai Bleu .J'espere un jour en obtenire une aussi bonne.Bon POV image nette avec de beau détails.La lumiere est exquise.

Merci Michel

You and Mario have most of the bases covered when it comes to birds in Quebec. Another of this fascinating and sometimes bothersome Jay. As long as I have nothing he wants, I feel safe. A nice portrait from the side in its natural setting.

Hi Claude. What a nice pose in this shot of the colourful Jay. good colours and fine detail .I like the dark BG and the old bark on the tree stump.a nice POv/DOF. well done TFS.

Hi Claude,

You are taking some beautiful pictures at the moment, and I mean beautiful. I'd be happy with this if it was the only picture I ever took, but I think that about most of the shots you've posted over the past weeks and months. The light is simply stunning.

Hello Claude,
Through that light is this one of the best photos of a Blue Jay I've ever seen. The light shines exactly on the right places, all over the bird. The details, composition, BG, etc... are excellent! A photo to be proud of.

Hello Claude, this is a superb and very well composed shot. Beautiful Blue Jay with wonderful pov. Light on the eye, colours and detail on the markings are excellent. Nice and sharp with a perfect dof.

bonjour claude
si si j'insiste votre geai est vraiment un bel oiseau et je pense que vous avez un avantage,c'est que vous pouvez l'attirer aux mangeoires avec des cacahuetes mais le pic vert je me vois mal lui proposer un plat de fourmis,enfin je m'egare mais comme il n'y rien a reprocher a l'image!!!
felicitations et merci.

Hello Claude,
a very unique kind of light, and a very special, touching pose of this blue jay, adorably well approached and precisely pictured. Thank you!
