I think it is the swath of colour in the background which is lit by sun and deeply saturated which brings out both the bird itself AND the feeling of the pictures as a whole. A fine image for last early on spring; a season I look forward to very much this time around.

I like your image of the Whisky jack. I like how you kept the trees in focos and in the picture. Its beutiful. I was working in a remote site close to Robb about five years ago, and these birds were flying around. I bet a guy $20.00 that I could get it to sit in my hand. It was quick and easy money.
Have a fine day,

Hi Rick this is a charmer of a photo and I too have had these little guys land on my hat and boldly try to take food right out of my mouth,however I didn't mind in the slightest as,they are just so cute.I like the colour this image has and the hanging moss looks interesting , the bird is sharply focused and very lively looking.I can just see it robbing you for a bite to eat.Thanks for giving us this delightful little bird to view.

i love much more photos like this one where the bird
is a little bit smaller but with him we see his environment
on this photo being all the branches, very very fine POV
and framing, superbly focused with great sharpness & details,
very beautiful glance of the bird and eye-contact with you,

your bird photo is so lively in wilderness. Well seen in a good camouflaged of the same colour.
Very fine feather shown in great details, and the dark shiny eye is lovely.
Very pleasant composition.
Wonderful clean capture of this amazing and unknown for me bird with the funny name Gray Jay ! Bravo Rick! HOWEVER... I think that the color balance of that image is wrong! Again! Instead of explaining, I am presenting my version at the Workshop. Big change isn't it! Have a great week Rick!

Ah, a bird I actually have seen with my own eyes. It was performing, just as you said, in Bryce National Park. It was nice of him to settle down so you could get this lovely relaxed shot. I love the natural setting, the fine colors and shadings and the wonderful details of the face, wings and plumage.
