Stella wanted an action shot for her professional portrait,

A Stellar jay is launching itself from a branch. The head is bending forward and the wings are half spread behind. The long outer feathers are black and the shorter inner feathers are the intense blue that jays are known for. The lighting makes the wings look translucent. This beautiful photo by Gloria Z Nagler

not another humdrum headshot... (Steller's Jays, aka Cyanocitta stelleri, are likely monogamous, mating for life -- and what a lovely mate they make!)

I've been taking pictures of my local pair of Stellar Jays for years and not a single one of them is anywhere near as good as yours. Keep up the good work!
