Morning Surprise

Uploaded by: Proserpina

Monday March 18, 2013

Northern Virginia, VA

Caption: This morning I expected a cold but sunny day but I found a pretty snow scene. The birds were waiting for me to feed them. The visiting harbingers of spring, the Robins, are rather puzzled with the white snow lace.

Lovely shot, Pros.

It had already dropped out of the AC gallery by the time I heard.

There were two male cardinals outside yesterday, after I got home from work. They were doing their best to pitch a little woo to a demure female!

The clash of the seasons with a very bright
red accent! What a beautiful surprise for you,
and us, Maria! Not surprising at all is the
Blue frame around this one! Congratulations!

Quoting Proserpina:
No, this is our State Bird called a Cardinal. Not to be confused with the recent Conclave of Cardinals.
