~Look Up~

Look up you just might see,

a feathered friend perched in a tree,

eating, resting, preening,

always a pleasure for me.

    1. Theresa, I will have to look through my photos, of our travels through Texas, to see if I captured any Shrikes. They are a pretty bird! Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

    1. Hi Gunilla, yes the Cardinals are so pretty! I seem to have difficulty capturing a really good photo of the male Cardinal. It must be the red color. 😉 Thanks for stopping by; have a great Wednesday.

  1. You have captured some real beauties Sheila! I have finally trained myself to look up…what amazing creatures I have found there! Hope you and Howard are having a great start to the new year and are enjoying yourselves. Certainly looks like a little piece of heaven you have found there in Florida…

    1. Gay, so truly happy to hear from you! Thanks so much for your sweet words. Yes, we are doing fine, still in Florida. We have had a few days of COOL weather, which I am happy about! I hope you and Joe are enjoying your days. Hope you get back to blogging soon! I have missed your beautiful and fun posts.

      Always look up! 🙂
