One of the things I love about our new place here in Texas is the birdwatching -- we don't have to wander far from home to see lots of gorgeous birds. At the moment, we have a pair of Cardinals hanging out somewhere around our property, and they show up most mornings at our birdbath. Haven't been able to get a shot of the lady Cardinal yet -- she's much more easily spooked than her hubby bird. (Click on photos to enlarge.)

They're sometimes joined by one or two little House Finches, adding just a bit more color to their birdie spa.
