#9 Packaging

Sometimes I’ve pondered why the Lord elected to “package” his creation as He did. Yet, I’m very glad he made the bright red Cardinal. They are so beautiful flitting between trees. Almost takes my breath away. Then, if you pair them with a couple of Blue Birds, the sight is magnificent.

These photos are not the sharpest. The Cardinal was spied. I ran for my camera. There was no way I could get outside to capture a shot without scaring it off. Besides that, they move very quickly, as you know if you have ever tried to photograph birds.

Naturally, the ubiquitous dirty window was not the best of “filters” to sight through. Still, I’ll present these poor photos as my “packaging” theme.

Have not a clue what that is by his head. It is not on other photos, nor is it on the root. It is not on the bird.

This one is the worst of the lot. But I like his expression with his crown raised.

I could get only three shots before he departed the scene. 😦 So, here they are, for what they are worth – which isn’t much.

All three required enhancement – but just a tad. Also sharpening.
