I have taken numerous photos lately of the many cardinals that live in our trees. Yesterday there were 4 on the feeder with several others in the trees waiting their turns. Those will be painted I am sure, but this guy caught my attention when perusing my photos. Maybe it is the fact that it is so stinking hot here and I was wishing for the cold weather that is depicted in the photo.
This beautiful cardinal was all puffed up trying to get warm. He was just gorgeous sitting in our oak tree.
