blue jay feathers

found strung along the path of one day’s five mile walk

vadnais lake, saint paul, minnesota

  • Kathleen says:

    Such a lovely blue.

      I agree. There isn’t a ton of blue like that in nature, that’s what makes these so special for me. Besides, I find it pretty rare to find blue jay feathers at all, so to find 4 on one walk is special too.

      • Kathleen says:

        Lucky. That was my thought too, as I’ve yet to find a blue jay feather although they visit our yard. I had dreams of a blue and white garden long ago, but realized that most blue flowers are more mauve (which I love–it’s just not blue).

    Absolutely beautiful. I really love the color and agree it is rare to see much blue in nature. Reminds me that I need to get out of the city and back to nature.

      Thank You Marcie! Interestingly, this is the specimen that started my whole STILL blog project. I had picked a couple stalks of teasel, and brought them home. I liked it so much that I placed one of them on my open journal and photographed it. Mostly just to document it. Then I liked the photo so much…well, the rest is history as they say.
