I have captured many Blue Jays before, but never in my front yard. I have often set food out waiting to see these beautiful yet bossy birds. It took snow for one of them to finally find his way here. I didn't want to chance him flying away before I got my camera on him, so I ended up taking this through the front door window. It definitely degrades the photo from what the bare glass of my lens would have done, but it still turned out pretty good with a little deeper post-processing.
