It certainly is one for the books! Your full and central composition grants us a very beautiful bird portrait to enjoy. Your excellent photo projects a lovely eye gleam and feather detail. Exposure and sharpness are spot on. Excellent photo and very good luck in the competition!

Willie, This is beautiful! I am amazed at the clarity, the detail and the contrast of the jay against the background. The eye is beautiful and so is the bird's expression. This is a real winner!
