Cardinals - this is one of my favorite bird photos ever. I love that cardinals stay around to brighten winter days, tho I don't see snow like this during the winter. But when the trees are bare, cardinals decorate it beautifully!
A glance over the shoulder a whisper in the mist, an echo through the trees. Spirit travelers, shamans and tricksters. As surely as his paddle slices the surface, he knows he is not alone. Poem by Wintercove Paddler in the early morning mist.
