Something Lovely: Blue Jay on a Cloudy Day

CathyHeck_BlueJayFoggyDay

Ellen started our Something Lovely category a few weeks ago, and ever since then, I have been continually spotting something lovelies, but finding myself without my camera nearby. Last week, however, I was working in the studio with Julianna, who was home for Fall Break, when she said, “Mom, look, look at that BLUE bird. He is really blue.” I turned around from my work, “It’s a blue jay!” (Coincidentally, I call Jules “J-Bird” all the time.) I was so excited, “Oh, oh … I have my camera, be very quiet.” I started to tip-toe a little closer to the window. I have tried this a million times, when I see a pretty bird from the studio, but usually, by the time I get my camera and make my way stealthily over to the window, my little feathered friend looks over his shoulder, sees me, and bolts. But, this time, I got it. I couldn’t believe it. Even on a very foggy day. Good work J-Bird!

I was just using a little artist’s license so that the forest friends would show up against the light background of a baby’s crib bumper. I hope a lot of precious babies enjoyed waking up to these something lovelies.
