Spring Beauty

Had the opportunity to spend a few days in the country near the Brazos River.  Hope you can enjoy this small collection of the quite beauty of the area.

I heard a ruckus outside and found this beautiful sight, a sky full of geese angles.

 The above picture was in the morning and the following was later in the day.  Can you see the fences now that the fog is gone.

This was just the shape of the dead limb gradually being covered by Virginia creeper.

 And the skies were just such a beautiful color!

Possibly a female cardinal.

 It surprised me that this wren had already had a family to feed.

 There were several cardinal couples in the area.

Wild Bird Wednesday – 135

First post in almost a month.  My mom was put in the hospital on Jan. 17, the day after the last post.  She died 10 days later.  Mom always loved cardinals.  She would call and inform me if the cardinals were visiting her bird feeder.  These were the only cardinal photos I could find to honor her memory and love of birds.
