Ruby Tuesday

As I looked out on the "Blizzard of 2011"  this cardinal flew up to the bird feeder off my deck and claimed it as his territory. I really enjoy watching the birds at the feeders in the winter and thought this guy would be perfect for Ruby Tuesday. 
The snow is really coming down now so I wouldn't be surprised if we get the 20 inches they are predicting here. Missouri just doesn't usually get this much snow so it's a major event here.

  1. Waiting the blizzard tonight here in Michigan too. Hope nobody would get hurt. Keep safe and keep warm!

  2. What a great capture - that first one especially!
    I love watching the birds too and cardinals in winter really brighten the gloomy days.
    Stay safe and warm during the storm.

  3. Love your red fellows there. Stay safe and warm. Hope you don't lose power.

  4. Great capture. I love the red against the snow-muted grays.

    My photography is available for purchase - visit Around the Island Photography and bring home something beautiful today!

  5. When I lived in Pennsylvania, cardinals were a common--and welcome--sight. Out here in the desert Southwest? Alas, no cardinals!


    Tonight, my dear, I’m seeing red—
    Or is it puce or rose?
    Whatever’s going round my head
    Is tingling all my toes.

    My heart, my dear, becomes inflamed
    With passion sore ablaze;
    Perhaps it is because I miss
    Your glowing, crimson gaze.

    Whate’er the cause, my face is flushed
    Like a ripened cherry,
    No longer healthy, but inflamed—
    See the vessels serry*?

    A certain sanguine aftertaste
    Is clinging to my tongue,
    For I have kissed your ruby lips—
    To which the claret clung.

    *serry – (archaic) to crowd closely together
