Some Kind of Wonderful!

Yesterday I was very busy taking pictures, of Mr. Red...
sitting on the floor in my home office,
shooting through the glass window.
 
I stopped to look at the images and was so disappointed,
the windows are dirty from all the stormy weather
and I was so unhappy with the pictures.
 
The window was unlocked, so I decided to open it.
Much to my surprise, Mr. Red did not fly off.
 
He decided to stay,
 
and pose.
 
Here I am sure he see's me but he does not fly off.
 
One last perfect pose, a puff out and off he went.
 
If you feed them they will come!

    He would not like it here today.

    Spring is not coming here tomorrow. :-(

  6. nope - i think he's telling you that the birdfeeder is running low on sunflower seeds...LOL

    I got out of cleaning windows last year because the fire etched them all with pieces of burning pine needles ;p but this year i will be out there as soon as the snow melts (yay!)

  7. He's a handsome fellow and definitely posing for you...the ham! I find the cardinals one of the least skittish of the birds, after the gold finches, when it comes to snapping them.
