The Cardinal

A flicker and rustling sound in the berry bush
beside the driveway stopped me in mid-step.
I paused and stood very still until
this lovely young cardinal came into view.

Nice photo! he looks a little grumpy, perhaps upset that his parents aren't feeding him anymore.

What a lovely blog you have with such beautiful images. This little bird looks like he is posing for a Christmas card!

acornmoon,
thank you so much for visiting and I very much appreciate your comment!

Purple Flowers,
we usually see many cardinals in the winter and this summer there was a cardinal couple who had a nest near our back porch. I think this may be one of their sons!
