Just realized it's the end of August! I spotted my first Stellar's Jay in Washington on the side of Mt Rainier. He was even more bold and brazen than eastern Blue Jays. I have a series of shots showing him coming closer, and in this shot he was mantling and lowering his head to the ground, listening for something. Other shots of him fully mantling don't show his face as well, so I chose this one.

What happened to all the photos this month? Is everybody waiting till the eleventh hour to post?

Maybe there are just too many contests going on simultaneously?

I loaded in the last of them to view a few moments ago so I must make a decision soon.
I had 6 picked out previous to this but now have 7. It is hard to choose just 4.

The chartreuse is portrayed so very well.

I was trailing a pair of osprey when I spied this little fellow.

He turned out much better than they did.
