Finding red in nature for Ruby Tuesday

One of my most favourite red sighting in nature! A male Northern Cardinal, seen in Bird Alley a week ago. I haven't seen him since. Now and then I see a cardinal outside my window but it is nor an usual sighting here! " Oh Happy Day" Isn't this bird's head beautiful!!!! Not a common sighting for me but it is almost a daily event to see in our feeder area recently as the province is experiencing an irruption of these Red-bellied Woodpeckers.. Lucky us I guess. Now I would love to see a male Pine Grosbeak soon! It must be about time for them to arrive in our cranberry tree .

This red ground cover fascinates me. It is covering a gentle slope that is climbing towards the edge of a wooded area.

A post of red in nature wouldn't be complete without a forested view containing red maples. They are so beautiful!

And a view of the red I hope for every spring. I find a Robin an inspiring sighting any time of year whenever I see one!

Got photos with red? Why not share them by posting them to

Great captures. I haven't begun feeding our birds yet, but will probably start right after Thanksgiving. Wonderful set of captures and the red maples are just stunning. Happy RT.

The autumn shot with all those dazzling red maples warms my heart!


Just a pinch of scarlet
To liven up the place;
Just a hint of ruby
Brushed upon your face;
Just a bit of cherry
Dancing round your toes;
Just some sanguine colors—
That’s the way it goes!
