Mrs. Cardinal and Kitchen Scallions

I got some nice shots of a female cardinal visiting in our backyard. You can even see her feathers.

Hello, Mrs. Cardinal! What a fine bright red beak you have.

Is this the same female cardinal? She looks a little different than the one shown above.

Mr. Cardinal was a bit further off, hiding in the lower branches of a neighbor’s bush.

On a different topic, I put some scallion ends in water in my kitchen. Truthfully, I forgot about them; oh, my, I see they really have grown! I did change the water at least once. I think you are supposed to change the water every other day.

Neat photos of the cardinals! The scallions look healthy to me.

Lorri says

Stunning feathered-ones captures. Each one a beauty. I love the female cardinal...she is precious.

Nice on the scallions.

Rambling Woods says

Oh what great photos Leora..can really see the detail in the feather and the eyes. I don't know if it is a different female or if the way the light was. If they came in as a mated pair, they might not tolerate another cardinal so it probably is the same one. Your scallions are doing really well even when you weren't watching..thank you for the birthday wishes... Michelle

She's lovely isn't she? That second photo is particularly wonderful because of all the detail it shows of her plumage
