Ah, yes! definitely 🙂
Those are some absolutely gorgeous pictures! Thanks for sharing them!
You are very welcome!😊. Not my beat with the cardinal but it WAS through a window because I didn’t want to disturb him😊
They were still great! I love Cardinals!
After all the rain we have had here, I just have to ask what that bright light is in the sky. Also, what type of bird is the red one on the bird bath. He is pretty. Thanks Diane. Allan
Haha, sorry you haven’t seen the sun in a while. It was so beautiful last night. The bird is one of the male cardinals that frequent our bird bath and yard. There are also at least two female ones. I sure do love when they come to visit. We also have a new painted bunting that has been visiting but he is colored as vibrantly as last years was.
No words needed. It is enough just to sit back, stay quiet, and soak it in.
AH! so well said Mike! thank you…that is exactly what we did 🙂
Great pics! I love nature 🌷
Oh good! so glad you liked them. We enjoyed the sunset last night and I do love my cardinals that visit us many times a day. Thank you!
What an awesome presentation. Nature at its best. Peace and Calmness.
Aw!, thank you! I really appreciate your sweet comments💗
Welcome so much.
No words needed the pictures tell the story. Beautiful
Thank you for your kind words. They mean a lot to me 😊
Great shots! I love the sunset picking through the branches! Btw, I have nominated you for Real Neat Blog Award! Congrats!
Thank you! I am glad you loved it. Unfortunately, last night, that tree was hit by lightening and knocked to the ground. So sad, it was a beautiful tree.
Thank you for the nomination that is so sweet of you and it means so much that you thought of me💗
It is sad…but you have captured the beauty so it still living in the picture you took. 🙂 My pleasure to nominate you, it’s a shortlist 🙂 Happy weekend!
Aw!, thank you…it’s nice to be a part of the shortlist😊. Yes, I am so glad I have had many chances to capture that beautiful tree. Have a wonderful weekend too😊☀️💚☀️😊
So peaceful and beautiful 🙂
Serenity at it’s best alongside the water! Just love the gorgeous Cardinal too, always a delight to see one of these!
Thanks Donna! So true, the water always brings me peace. We are fortunate with the cardinals. We have a flock of them that between our place and our neighbors.
Lucky you on the all the local Cardinals! My little comfort thing, “when a Cardinal appears, an angel is near”. I instantly think of my Mom who I lost suddenly almost five years ago when I see a Cardinal. I always think or even sometimes say loudly, “Hi Mom” 🙂 Even a photo of one makes me think of my Mom and I smile. So thank you, Diane! I do miss her so…..
And BTW, a Cardinal flew in front of us this afternoon on our way home. Mom is watching over me!
Donna, I LOVE that you had a cardinal fly right in front of you today. Mine too on they are a sign from Heaven. I understand your pain and am so sorry for your loss. We lost my Mom suddenly seven years ago. Every time I see the cardinals my heart feels happy. I am so glad I could
Brighten your day by sharing the pics😊❣️
Thank you, Diane, and I am so sorry for your loss as well. Great Blue Herons were my Mom’s favorite bird so I enjoyed taking lots of photos of them for Mom; I still see them often, of course, and they are another smiling reminder of her. 😊 Birds are definitely a gift to us from the Heavens above!
Aw! Thank you! I love the blue
Herons too. It’s neat to know the story behind your photos of the blue herons. Thanks for sharing that. My mom’ fav was the dove but she also loved any bird with bright colors😊and, that is why I love listening to the many doves we have out here. It brings our moms closer to us, doesn’t it💕?
It does ❤
