female Cardinal for Outdoor Wednesday

I didn't have a pic for yesterday's meme Ruby Tuesday. I had considered going into my photo archives to find an older picture of a Cardinal. I guess a Cardinal was on my mind. What a surprise this morning to look out my window and see a beautiful female Northern Cardinal. Although it looks like it was having a bad hair day, it had the most beautiful red eyebrow. It was definitely a female!
This picture above shows the Cardinal (can you find her?) in a more rugged outdoorsy sort of shot. I like textures in photos.

We have Cardinal's in the yard too. They like to come to the feeder in the morning before light and just at dusk to feed in peace I guess.

Your photos are so lovely. I especially like the lighting.

My Cardinals are beginning to show their faaces more now that the Grackles, and Starlings have gone at least for a while.

We have two pairs of resident Cardinals in our yard. I love watching them in the tree outside our kitchen window. The occasional territorial fight happens.

The Cardinals always look their prettiest in the winter. I never tire of them.
