|This little guy was waiting for us on Spruce Bog Trail.|
We were on the back part of the Mizzy Lake trail and were headed back to the van to call it a day, when out of the blue a small group of Gray Jays arrived and were quite willing to take peanuts from our hands. One of them flew down into the snow, I think he thought he could land on it. It happened so fast that no one got a picture of how beautiful he looked with his wings spread out in the snow, but we all saw it. After he flew away I noticed the outline of his feathers in the snow, natures artwork at it's finest.
It was difficult to get a picture of, but if you look close you can see the outline of his wing and tail feathers.
