American Cardinal


Red in winter is a beautiful thing. Red outdoors in winter is an even more beautiful thing.
A red American Cardinal in winter outdoors adds so much beauty to the landscape. And this little guy was just begging to be photographed on my last trip to Mustatatuck, so I obliged. It's the only photos in the refuge I took that day as I was just making a quick trek through from my Ewing Bottoms adventure. Hope your week is off to a great start. Severe storms coming tonight. Living on the edge in this place we call the Ohio River Valley. ENJOY!
