Blue Jay Series

I was overjoyed to see this beautiful blue jay perched in my dogwood tree last September. I am so glad I was able to showcase his vibrant blue feathers and jaunty spirit in this series of photos.

I am submitting these photos for JNW’s Color Your World-Blue photo challenge as my second entry today. What can I say? I love blue and I love birds. I will also place them in Lucile’s photo101 rehab clinic as my first entry of the year.

  1. Beautiful! And I love “jaunty.” Just the right word

  2. Yes, you did get some Blue Jay pictures and nice ones at that! I am extremely jealous. The first one really shows off the intricate color scheme. Nicely done!

  3. When I lived in your country, my wife and I built a small garden at home, which some likened to an English cottage garden. Being able to start from scratch, we were able to find both unusual and more traditional plants, and I loved those that attracted birds and butterflies in. Back home in Australia now, I miss the blue jays, robins, butterflies, and especially the hummingbirds.
