Sunglasses Flying Away

Crows are known to love anything shiny, and I imagine their close cousins blue jays feel the same way!  A week ago, someone came into my work to purchase sunglasses because his had been stolen by a bird.  This is how I imagine the scene.

My sunglasses here are made with my photo of the inside of a carrot, paired with sequins, and a Rorschach test.  I drew the little blue jay thief with colored pencils, and placed the entire piece over my photo of a beautiful spring day.
