Autumn Blue Jay (Origami)

“Autumn...the year's last, loveliest smile.”
   -William Cullen Bryant (1794-1878)

    While practicing to make a simple cardinal model by Roman Diaz, I used a paper that was white and blue.
It gave me the idea to try and make an actual blue jay and this is what resulted.

Made from an uncut square of paper , painted beforehand on both sides with acrylics.

I don't know what I like the most. I like the origami itself, good work with the paiting gave it a different and beautiful look that turned out very well in photography, which is excellent by the way ^_^

Thank you very much.

I really enjoy going out and finding good spots for pictures, so it's really by trial and error that I end up with good pictures.
