I am positive that you have seen cardinals admiring and or fighting with themselves in the rear view mirror of your car! So have I, and this one left quite a few marks on my car with her sharp nails.
You Can't See Me
This cardinal thought that he could fool me by standing still among the few colorful leaves left on the branches. I like this sort of games, as he gave me time to get my camera ready to shoot.
Ladybug By the Door
I'm not sure what this ladybug still doing around at this time of year by my back door, but it didn't stay long. I got two photos and it fiew away. The dots on this ladybug were very strange to see also.
