A visting cardinal




A cardinal flew into our yard
To visit us today.
He proudly posed in robe of red
And then he flew away.

A deferent salute to His Eminence! These photos are beautiful, I'd like to have one within my "range".
Here we have dirty pigeons and murderous seagulls only! Oh, lucky Florida!

What a beauty. Nice verse. I always liked Cardinals. I have never seen one in person as we do not have them out here. MB

Wow! I'm not much into birds but this is one is gorgeous. I'm not even sure I could capture a bird as beautifully as you did. :)

He's gorgeous! We also get birds of all sorts in the garden, but nothing as pretty as this.

Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comment. Happy weekend and come back tomorrow!

Even though cardinals are common up here it is always a surprise to see that flash of red as they fly by.


PJ O'Brien is an Irish pub in Toronto. How did I not know;) Also I like your play on words.
