    Great pictures Bethie. He obviously loves your yard art! I haven't had any Cardinals around my yard this winter...I wonder why?

    What a beautiful sight Bethie, and the Cardinal is not half bad either :D Joking aside I really wish I had those little guys around where I live. I wonder what is the evolutionary reason for their bright red colour?

    Don't you just love those beautiful red birds! We have two pair on our acre. Each pair can live on 1/2 acre without grand territorial battles until one male drives the other off.

    I love that first picture. He picked a place to land that would show him off to the best advantage didn't he?

    Love that mosaic urn he is sitting on too.

    Nicely caught, Bethie, I particularly like the first,

    Great shots! Wonder if he was attracted by the color on your urn? It's a really stunning mosaic!
