All Puffed Up

I found this young fellow posted outside my home office today, and I noticed that he sat there for quite some time -- seeming very content to be puffed up and stationary in the cold, winter weather. The picture doesn't really do justice to the brilliant shade of red of his feathers -- but it was enough of a reminder to me that I got off track from the purpose of this blog by not posting yesterday. Does that now make this Blog 366 so that I can make up for the missed day?

Ah!! I'm so jealous. None of my cardnicals will get that close or sit still long enough for a good photo. I love this one int he twigs. Very winter. They are so cute when they get all fluffed up.

Great shot. If you don't like the shade, you might be able to play with your color saturation settings (do you have photo editing software?) to pull out those great reds, and make them more true-to-life.

And you are forgiven for missing one day! :-)

I love this picture! You really captured his beauty, even if we aren't seeing all the color you did. Great shot!
