While in the UK we bought a new digital camera, one which has a much higher megapixel rating than the old one. Today my better half snapped this shot of a Jay eating from the fruit of the loquat tree in the front garden. It's been cropped to bring the jay into easy view, and he's still pretty distinct isn't he. With the old camera he'd have been so pixelated that you probably wouldn't have seen him at all.
The fruit of the loquat tree is a "jay-magnet" at this time of year and we're not complaining. Although it's edible and some of our Greek friends go "yummy!" at the sight of them, we don't enjoy them all that much, so the jays have a ready-made supply of birdfood!
