Here are a few more from our last stop before we get to the Key West. The blue bird is a Florida Scrub Jay, an endangered species and only found in Florida. We were really pleased to have seen him.

It looks like you are in bird paradise. Do you know the name of the blue bird in the last photo? I bet the the sunset and sunrise are also spectacular. I look forward to seeing more photos of your Florida adventure.

It is a Florida Scrub Jay. There were definitely lots of birds to shoot.

Thanks. One of our goal was that scrub jay.

K-5 and the DA 300mm. It has turned out to be a nice combo.

You've got that lens dialed in! The first 3 are really excellent. And I love the jay...you captured the attitude of that one perfectly.

I'm not sure if it is exactly the same, but we do have a blue scrub jay in CA, they are a bit inquisitive and mischievous to say the least. I really enjoyed seeing the full color photos Susan, quite beautiful and sharp.

What an enjoyable series, Susan - each shot is crisp, perfectly focused and colorful. The ibis made me smile as these birds always do. I barely know one bird from another, but I do think of blue jays as being ugly brutes. This little guy's pretty cute.

The scrub jay found in the west is considered a different bird Bob. This particular one is found only in Florida I believe. Thanks for stopping by.

You misjudge the bluejay Jer. The feathers of those guys blow me away. Blue colors like that are so rare in nature. The scrub jay, while not as colorful is awfully cute.
