I was at Old Car City in Georgia wandering around the aisles of old cars, and found this poor dead Blue Jay lying on the pine needles and leaves. Now these birds have beautiful patterns and colors in their feathers, but tough to get a tight close-up while they are quickly moving around as they do.
So this subject allowed me to set up my tripod and get as close as I wanted. I like the pine cones next to the tail so included that in the frame along with the needles. I like the strong contrast of the bright patterned blues against the earth tones on the rest of the subjects. I added a slight dark vignette around the outside in Smart Photo Editor.
