@!&#!? Perfection

A beautiful thing is never perfect. ~ proverb

I’ve never posted just one photo. I have too many I want to share and it is so hard for me to settle for just one. But I’m finally going to let myself do it! I’ve been saving this shot for the perfect post, the perfect time. There is none, I know that, but just like I save my best clothes, my best glasses, my best art supplies… I continue to do this @!&#!?

Perhaps this week I will dress a bit fancy, let myself drink a glass of wine in the best glasses and make some art with the stuff I’m saving for someday. And if I don’t… I will not beat myself up for this too.

perfect cardinal

P.S. I named this shot “Perfect Cardinal”

    Yowza…that’s pretty darn perfect! How did you get so close and what type of zoom do you have?

    Can you add him into your header somehow? He’d look great against the turquoise!

    that’s lovely. i almost never post just one photo. always a series as i can’t decide on a favorite, or the tilt of a bird’s head says something else in each photo. i applaud your choice!

    Aw, don’t we all have days like this cardinal? We had a bald male last year, I’ll have to see if I can find that picture to share. It was supposed he had a mite issue. We always see pictures of them in full plumage, so this photo is a pleasant change.

    He is just gorgeous! It’s tough for me to post just one, too, but I rarely have one this good! Glad you shared him with us! I’m trying to do better and not saving things, too.
