Rain and the Cardinal

We had a rainstorm a couple of days ago and  last night.  The photos below ere taken when we were visiting my father-in-law.
Dad's neighbor's back porch.  
Here's the shot of the rain water  hitting the ground.
Then the next day when we went and visited him again, I saw this cardinal.  I turned off the fire in the stove  where I was cooking some snacks, grabbed my camera and snapped some shots of this  male cardinal.
He realized that chubskulit is stalking him so he flew away.
I was using my point and shoot camera  so the sudden   movement of the cardinal made this capture.

So sweet! We have a couple of cardinals around here, one which is the most adorable little baby. He hops around the patio with his wings spread out, ready for a quick flight if he must. :p

We have a happy couple in our neighbourhood as well, though the female is hard to spot (as it should be). They've been passing through for years, but I've never seen a baby. I think I'd die from the cuteness if I did. My story this week is called Culmen ’79.

Cardinals are always a spot of brightness when seen in the yard. Kate ABC team

The title reminds me of a detective series I read a long back called Cat & The Cardinal.. that apart I just love rains and invariably rush to greet it by getting wet :)
