A highly detailed Blue Jay stands atop a weather worn branch, its beak holding a berry. The bird's feathers are depicted in intricate detail, with individual strands carefully crafted to give the appearance of real, vibrant plumage. The blue jay’s head is turned slightly to the side, giving the viewer a glimpse of its piercing gaze and sharp beak. A chokecherry branch flows up, its deep red wine-colored berries are a striking contrast to the blue jay's vivid blue. The artist hopes to bring out the awareness of the beauty of the natural world and the need for conservation.
