tuesday unwrapped.

...treasuring this morning moment for two reasons:

first, that brilliant cardinal red is seen best against the neutral landscape and bare trees of winter. I don't really think of winter as a pretty season, but it is. beautiful.

and second, I was already late for work (spent a few extra minutes on my hair, ugh!), but I saw the bird as I was backing out the driveway and knew it could be the moment. I tried to take the picture from my rolled down car window, but of course I wasn't close enough. so I put the car in park, jumped out and gave that cardinal my best photographer moves... and I still made it to work with four minutes to spare!

again, I'm linking up with emily. looking forward to seeing what others have to share.

  3. So-o-o glad you stopped & took the time to get this photo- and to share it with us. Makes this very rainy day not so bleak, after all.
    Cheers~

  6. This sounds so terrible, but I never noticed birds until about three years ago. I think I've always just been rushed or busy or maybe didn't care.

    However, now that I notice them, I'm in awe of their beauty. Yikes, love that red.

    Popped over from Emily's.
