While MadlySNAPPING the wildflowers, I focused on the Plumbago behind them, the bush first,
then a close up
Trying to get a shot of Tickseed and Plumbago, Mrs Cardinal, of the silly pair that has built a nest just above ground level in our Powderpuff bush, flew through my lens and lit and stared at me.
She seemed to be wondering why I was taking photos of the door to her new home... I only got these two pics of half of the loving couple. I hope Jakeosaurus doesn't find them home.
the red x is where she sat, the end of the arrow is their front door. Both of them have been flying in and out that whole for days now.
TODAY NOTE: this has been in drafts long enough that Mr and Mrs and family have flown the
coop bush safely.
