Saturday Critters ~ 229 ~

There are a lot of beautiful birds in Longwood Gardens.
I don't usually pay too much attention to them 
as I am always focused on the gorgeous landscape, trees and flowers.

During our last visit I found a beautiful Cardinal couple,
and spent just a few minutes taking their picture.






There's always that one stick...

  9. LOL, I had to laugh at your last comment there has to be that one stick, Greg and I both seem to have that problem :) I don't mind as much as he does about things being in the way of a shot. Great pics of the couple :)
