Hidden Blue Jay
Take a look at that blue figure in the center of the picture. It is a blue jay, and the squirrel lead me right to it! The blue jay thought I couldn't see it lurking around in there, but I saw it even more clearly than the camera did. and there was no escape for my new little friend!
He had to hop through the brambles, with no room to fly. It went so slow that I felt he too was trying to lead me somewhere. And when this blue jay finally made it out of the branches, he flew in the same direction that the squirrel had continued to run.
They both crossed the path in front of me in a flash! Was the blue jay trying to get revenge from the squirrel for leading me to him? Was he trying to return the evil favor? Animals can be strange.
