Now that my cancer has returned (with a vengeance), and I submit myself to the chemotherapy, I proceed with my bird photography as if it were part of the cure. In fact it is. This very young jay is quite special to me, and the capture and sharing of the image with you are my way of doing only important things with those moments that are left in my life. So enjoy the vividness of his brand new color, and understand that few people get to see a living example of the interior race of the scrub jay, let alone one that is such a beautiful brand new child. Thus do I selfishly surround myself with joy, by sharing what I love.
