We have a mommy and daddy Cardinal with a family of two babies in a nest resting just about eye level in our Bradford Pear tree. I just happened to be around, armed with camera, when daddy Cardinal arrived with food and cautiously made his way, branch to branch, to the nest to feed his babies. This series of pictures, by the way, justifies my entire purchase on that new Canon 70-300mm L lens – you can see the food in the Cardinal’s mouth!
The 4th of July is wildly celebrated here in America. I always enjoy photographing fireworks, you never know what you’re going to end up with! Taken at Southwood in Tallahassee, Florida.
P.S. Notice the moon appearing in some of these shots!

My mind has already left for our upcoming trip to Costa Rica. I guess I better do laundry to pack so my body can join up soon! In the meantime, here is your 27th weekly “what is it?!?” mystery picture, ready for your guessing pleasure. Can you tell? Do you know?
What Is It?!? – Week 27/52
What Was That?!? Last Week’s Picture – Week 26/52
Kayla started off the guessing game with “Rosemary.” Not Rosemary. Jude mused, “Darn! I should have come back to you on the car. I meant to but Wimbledon is on now so I have been distracted from blogging! … Stamens from a lily?” Not stamens from a lily. “Is it a plant?” Yes. Well, kind of. Ding ding ding! So exactly what was it? What you saw was a very tiny weed (zoomed in very close), which looked so interesting with these spike-looking protrusions.
P.S. My family will be traveling next week, and I’m leaving the computer behind, which means your week 28 mystery picture will be late, maybe just in time for week 29. But who knows! If I can find a way, I will make a post.
It’s like deja-vu, all over again. – Yogi Berra
We’re halfway there! I don’t know how fast your life has sped by in the last 26 weeks, but I swear the year just began, didn’t it? Ha! Well, just in time for the halfway mark, here’s your 26th weekly “what is it?!?” mystery picture, ready for your guessing pleasure. Do you know? Can you tell?
What Is It?!? – Week 26/52
What Was That?!? Last Week’s Picture – Week 25/52
Fabio mused, “… it seems like a wheel moving …” Not a wheel moving. Sarah guessed, “Glass dish with a red lid?” Not a glass dish with a red lid. Jude guessed, “A shot of a car from the front (hood)?” Not from the front or hood of a car … “Damn! I was convinced it was a Pontiac Firebird or something” Not that make or model … ;-)
I was hoping that you’d pick up on my very subtle clue. Remember, I’m very specific when I reply. Not that make or model … funny, two of you both had images of cars. Indeed, it did come from a car. So what was it?
What you saw was a section of a taillight. From a Ford Fusion. :)
