Look Left | Blue Jay | New York
One of the most common birds that I truly love is the Blue Jay.
Blue Jays are beautiful birds. They have the perfect combination of color offset by the white and black.
Despite the fact that Blue Jays are relatively common I have photographed them much less than other birds.
Blue Jays are often around but they do not seem to want to be photographed. At least not by me.
They don’t come close enough to be in my range. Or if they do they hide. Or they don’t stay in the open long enough for me to capture the moments.
But they are fun birds who will always let you know that they are around with the ruckus they can make with their calls and song.
I was happy when this Blue Jay settled right out in the open on this tree branch just long enough that I could capture this image.
