Not looking quite the pretty male cardinal yet. My juveniles are growing up but still looking a bit motley
I was very hard pressed to post a picture of a tree 🙂 – but couldn’t just give you another bird pic. However, I did get a really nice cardinal pic – so bonus pic day! I have a crab apple that was hit by lightening about a year ago (she’s coming down soon) so she has some interesting things going on (I also have a tree with pine beetle eggs but have decided not to show that one – fungi grosses me out less!
OK, I did say that I was going to stalk my cardinal til I got a picture that wasn’t taken from behind a window 🙂 After staying outside for 2 hours every day this week, he finally got comfortable enough to hang around for a while. Tomorrow I’m going to be doing some gardening, so preparing you in advance … you’ll probably see pansies 🙂
