It started to snow about 4:00 this afternoon and while the blue jay wasn't happy with the weather he coped as best as he could...I went out to brush the snow out of their bowl and gave them fresh seeds after I shot this picture. I think what I like about this picture is how the snow diffused the background for it to look surreal. It surprised me to see what looks like a log cabin on the right that doesn't exist beside other optical illusions.

Best View in Light Box! Thank you!

    A beautiful capture! He's lucky he's not living here.. my jays were digging down through ten inches of snow when I went outside to clear it off of their suet feeder. It has turned bitterly cold out this evening too. I'm already tired of winter -(

    Thank you for your comments ...I know what you mean Heather ...10 inches
    of snow where you live is way too much at one time beside being cold. Not
    easy for wild birds or for humans!
