Mr. Blue

"Don't cry because it's over.
Smile because it happened."
Dr. Seuss

It always brings such a smile to my face 
to spot one of the birds I hear chirping in the woods.

Even if that spotting only lasts for
two clicks of the shutter!

Linking up with


  1. What a capture! I haven't seen a blue jay in ages!

  2. Such sweet pictures! I can't remember thelast time I saw a blue jay!

  3. Fabuloso! We have lots of Bluejays here in Maryland -and even more where I used to live in NJ. But what I have neither seen nor heard in 30 years is a whip-poor-will. Their nighttime song is a cherished memory from my early years. They nest in open fields at the edge of the woods. When housing developments went in, the whip-poor-wills went away. Sigh.

  4. And SOMETIMES it is best to smile BECAUSE it is over...some things in life are better when they end; like a headache. :)

  5. Way to use those two seconds! I usually just miss by a click. Love Blue Jays, well looking at them. Aren't they somewhat temperamental?

  6. Wow fantastic share! I enjoy watching the Jays.

  7. gone in an instant. beautiful birds the jays are.

  8. a wonderful series!! i was never a huge fan of the dr. but i have always loved this quote.

    these images are extremely beautiful because of the tree he selected to pose in!!
