Hi Mario,
Good looking Blue Jay!
I just realized something that I think you have done previously, but I will imitate...;-)
The green cedar bough placed to enhance the backgound... Yes, I will try this for some variety!!! "Often we act by imitation, which is a homage to the person who inspired us." Luc Durocher (a very special member of TN, commenting the Spinx
Thank you! Mario!
Best Regards,

A beauty of a bird, Mario.
The details and colors on the blue jay are excellent.
I really like all the different textures on and around the log.
Well done and TFS. : )

Lovely picture. Sharp details and great colors. I love the piece of wood and the green spots. I do think you should have left some more space in the front of the bird. TFS!
