I see a fine photographic document: Bird's posture is admirable and soft light shows allover details on its body.
Thanks for further information in your note.

it is very nice when the animals are posing for camera. nice idea to take more shots. I liked the position of the bird against the leaves and it is well positioned too. Nice the soft light in the bird despite the white sky

Nice closeup of this Jay, unlike ours which are predominantly dark blue. Ours are also a major nuisance because they eat all my tree fruit along with the squirrels.
thanks for sharing,
