Scrub Jay posing

Usually busy snatching pretzel rings from the stalks, this jay finally paused long enough to pose for my camera while we were visiting Point Lobos in California. I continue to work on the framing of this shot, feeling the skinny frame I used earlier was not flattering. I've also chosen not to brighten up the bird more (see the adjacent shot), since that washes out the blue in the ocean backdrop.
