...Behold I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.
St Matthew 11: 10

The poor old blue jay
Doesn't have a life of ease
He knows it's a cold day!
When it is only 10 degrees!!!
We see the way he weathers
Enough energy to eat....
By fluffing his feathers...
He traps some heat....
(Seldom reaching his feet)
Unless he sits on them....
The journey he faces
Is in how he braces....
When not on a limb!
Poetry by me, AJP

    Looks like he's trying to warm up a bit before eating.. a beautifully introspective capture and poem, Andrea!

    Excellent shot of the Blue Jay. These are very hard birds to capture.
    Seems they are always on the move and very none trusting!
    you did a really good job with this one!
