In case you missed my first post in this 365 Photos Challenge you can see it here: Deck Sunset # 1.
Starting on day two of the photo challenge. I thought I would only be posting sunsets. During the winter, that is usually all I can catch a good picture of. However a few minutes ago, to my surprise, this male Cardinal visited my deck feeder. I was able to carefully open the glass doors wide enough for the camera lens and he allowed his photo to be taken. He actually posed for me. I love these birds. They are a bright red. When it snows, they are incredibly beautiful. There is an old saying that “when a Cardinal appears in your yard, it is a visitor from heaven”. I choose to believe that. My Dad loved seeing these birds in his yard. We always talked about them. He called them Red birds. And that they are! Always love the visits from the “Red birds”.
Here is my lucky catch of the beautiful Cardinal. He is holding a sunflower seed in his mouth you can barely see it. Too funny.
Tune in tomorrow, again, you never know what I may capture from my deck. Have a great evening!
