The New Definition of Red

Some birds are so striking that you can’t help but pause and marvel; like this glorious male Cardinal, who should be the new definition of red!  At the very least, he should have a Crayola color named in his honor…perhaps Cardinal Crimson?

I love it when he flares his crown feathers. 🙂

      I think you notice the colors much more than I do because of your artistic eye! I tend to look at the bird’s expression; I want the pictures to have personality! 🙂

      They are so common here that I have to strive to not take them for granted. Sometimes I just pretend like I am seeing them again for the first time and I am amazed at their beauty.
