The dogs and I were blessed again by a visit from Charlie, the Blue Jay.
Out of the woods he flew to a sign post not 3 feet away. I greeted him warmly and tapped my shoulder to see if he'd perch there. Charlie tried, but I had a hat on and it fumbled his attempt.
I happened to have my camera with me. The dogs somehow know when they need to be real quiet. I managed to get a few pics - even though some are not quite focused properly.
I then held out my hand and up he flew and perched right on my forearm.
I sooooooo wanted a picture of this but would have had to drop the dog's flexi leashes.....Not!
