This blog is about my garden and the outdoors. I am new to photography but I am trying to show some of the pretty things that grow here in Michigan. I love the wild things who visit me and I dont mind if they eat a bit here and there. I like it more if they let me take their picture. As time goes on I think I will try to show you around the beautiful area that I live in as well as my garden. I try to use my own pictures as much as possible but will also use pictures from the web. If I inadvertently use your photo or work without permission please email me and I will remove it or give credit if you prefer. I will give credit when I know who the owner is. I would ask that anyone using my pictures do the same.

Hello I am a baby Blue Jay......

This guy was quite amusing. He didn't know enough to be afraid. He was loving the wetness after the sprinkler had been on. Had to show the first picture just to show his fuzzy bum.

Then he came down onto the path and stared at me,

His feet look too big for him,

He just watched me unconcerned,

This may have been a parent, if so then he needed to get his kid in line it should have been scared of me.

So he took a sip from the path

In any case it was a sweet encounter, the bird was puzzled and I was thrilled for the privilege of watching him up so close. No zoom needed here.

Cute little fluff baby! I'm sure a parent was watching from somewhere. They probably know you by now and realize that you are not a threat.

Get some sunflowers in your hand and see if he'll come to you! My BFF had a pet blue jay when we were kids. I love blue jays for their raucous ways and bossiness at the feeders ... and you can't beat those blues! Wendy x
