It was just one of those days.. where the sun kept peeking out from behind the grey clouds and the breeze kept whispering my name and calling me outside. I couldn't resist and so headed for a small lake which is nearby. It turned out to be quite a colorful afternoon. First, it was the blue heron who caught my attention with his beautiful pale blue colors which seemed heighten, I think, by the contrasting greys, he stood in front of... ....next was this little cardinal who was quite willing to remain in the suns rays, while I snapped several pictures which show the little tinges of red and orange that compliment the buffy browns of its body. ...but my treat for the day, however, was finding these Cedar Waxwings. So many hues on one little bird! This was my first encounter with these little birds and what a treat it was. Why is it when God puts two colors together they just sort of sing?..
