When he came in he saith, Why make ye this ado? St. Mark 5: 39

The Blue Jay was making a big fuss over another bird of his own species which unfortunately I did not get in the picture as he was off like a rocket ship ...The male cardinal was on the feeder just before this and he also was chased off by the same blue jay.

I stitched these two pictures together photographed just seconds apart...(It had the same lighting and exposure etc.) I flipped the blue jay photo horizontally to have it facing the cardinal.. If you look carefully in the background you can see a soft optical illusion of a woodland creature of some kind with its eyes closed, between the two birds. When I turned the blue jay around, it made an abstract design in the background...

Much fuss and ado
Is shown by the jay
In the color of blue
Who had his say
With scolding words
To the other birds
He chased away...

Poetry by me, AJP
