Oh A Cardinal! Love cardinals - the birds & the baseball team!

I wanted to let you know that I'll get you signed up for Pic a Theme after work this evening. Thanks for joining!

Beautiful shot....really like it!

Tricia said...

Mojo - I just checked & you're already a member of Pic a Theme - I guess Dot must have signed you up! hehehe

Liz said...

Really nice - the blurry background, the curve of the branch, and the splash of red from the bird - it's all great!

That is a beautiful shot of the Cardinal! We don't have those birds in Norway - but I have seen photos of them before. This is one of the best!

And yes, drodling is the same as doodling! I have made those during hours and hours of boring meetings at work......(blushing) Thanks a lot for the compliment - guess my boss would say something else! (kidding - she knows I'm paying attention)

I discovered I don't have you on my bloglist, I thought I did, beacause I visit you so often! But now i have signed in! Like your blog you see!

Have a great weekend!
