Feelin' Blue...

 Since when are Blue Jays shy?

Feelin' Blue? Not me, at least not when a bird this gorgeous does this high fashion model kinda posing for me! A quick jaunt to the Horseshoe Pond in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park for a little walk about didn't produce many birds, but this one bird made up for it. I've always had a difficult time trying to get photos of the "common" birds, the ones you see ALL of the time, but you either don't have a camera or they won't sit still, or I am just plain crap at taking pictures...pick an excuse...I've used them all...oh was windy out that day...that's always a good one...or I had a piece of dust in my eye...or...

 Why is it that I get this crazy eye look from birds?
...and from most folks that I bump into as well...

 Yeah, fine...just stare at me and don't answer...fine...I can deal with it...fine...

 Yep, just look away...pretend I'm not here...I can take it...stoopid bird.

 Completely turn your back on me now! FINE!
Oh...those Jays!


  1. Oh ya! He's definitely avoiding you. I think he's really just trying to find a good thing to eat! They are very attractive birds.

  2. Curiosity got the better of him in the end. Nice set of pictures.
