Beautiful shots! Not sure if I enjoy bluejays or cardinals more. They are both so great looking in the snow.

Eva Gallant said...

Those are amazing photographs. What beauties those jays are! Awesome photography!

Tracy said...

Joan, All I can say is 'Wow!' just stunning! I had to call my husband in the room to look at such marvelous beauty!
So I want to ask you...what type of bird feed do you use to attract them? Obviously what we are offering they have NO interest in...
Happy New Year to you!

Loree said...

Beautiful birds and lovely vibrant colours. Wishing you a very happy 2011.

Blissed-Out Grandma said...

Yes, I love their color and their distinctive shape.

Cher' Shots said...

WOW - your photos are fantastic. My only issue with those beauties is that they are food hogs! They have terrible manners and don't like to share with the other birds.

Blue Jays are such pretty birds... Ours disappear from here in winter --but always come back Spring -Fall. Great pictures, Joan... I love seeing them all 'puffed up'..... I know they are COLD.

Happy New Year.
Hugs,
Betsy

If you hear a bump in the night in the next few days just go back to sleep. It will be me downstairs stealing your camera. They are wonderful shots and I hope you and hubby have a great new year.

I love all these BlueJay shots Joan!! Beautiful!! I wish we'd get more snow so the pics of the birds will be better. I love winter shots. The colors stand out so brilliantly!! Happy New Year!!

Blue jays are some of my favorite kinds of birds. You got some great pictures of them. Happy New Year!

Arti said...

Very pretty... Loved the stark contrast of the colors... Wish you a very happy new year:-)

BEAUTIFUL!!!
I LOVE the colors. These look nothing like the Bluejays we have, ours are drab in comparison.
