Winter Jays

The last few days have been simply glorious, with one of the coldest December weeks we've had in years... must be all that global warming I presume..? Heavy snowfall is one of the things I live for, and when the forecast comes, I make sure that I'm ready. From thermals to hats and gloves, and making sure batteries are charged... there's plenty things to get in order, and then there's the question of: "what do I photograph?" In answer to that question, I decided to endulge myself in pure wildlife photography. So it was back to the park to capture some more birds, and hopefully get some classic jays amidst snowflakes. These shots were taken on the first day of snowfall over 3 or 4 hours. Yes, I was cold by the end of it - but the pictures more than make up for numb fingers and toes. Enjoy...!


  1. Amazing Jays! Those snowflakes are awesome!

  2. Nice one Paul. These pictures are very atmospheric..

  3. Hello Dude,

    Really, all jays are looking so beautiful and attractive also sitting on the branches. The jays are several species of medium-sized, usually colorful and noisy, passerine birds. Thanks a lot......
