I’m thinking of buying a bird feeder for the cardinals that like to congregate on the side of my house. Suggestions for a type of bird feeder are welcome.
Finally, the snow is being to melt. As the snow recedes, one can see the spring plants poking out from under, as my cranesbill (genus geranium) is doing in this photo.
In winter just about the only bright color I see (besides the white of the snow before it turns gray or black) is red, as in a red berry bush like this one. I took this shot with my new Canon macro lens (Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Compact Macro AutoFocus).
I’m afraid if I start feeding the cardinals, this little guy, Mr. Squirrel, will help himself as well. I did see two squirrels under the burning bush where the cardinals like to hang out.
