#21 - I would not have been able to take that pic without requesting removal of the garbage can :)

#22 - the processing is super on this feast of textures and lines. As always, your humor is laigniappe :)
Thanks, Linda. If you had asked staff politely, as I suspect you would, they probably would have moved if it weren't too hot. Matt

Matt's 365 @23, A Conclave of Cardinals and Some Hungry Others

When we lived in VA, we would get REAL snow. I had several birdfeeders on the back deck that I filled diligently, although a neighbor claimed it was unfair to the birds since they could become dependent. Better to plant bushes with berries. But they would be too far away. And this was a feast for the eyes.

So, errands, etc have kept me away from the camera; here's one from the archive that I took through our kitchen window and will post here and in Wanderland. The cardinal in the lower left quadrant looks like he's leaping for joy. Matt

Lovely! It is magical. Two of those rectangles (lower left and upper right) could also stand on their own, and the lower one has enough magic to create an artistic version. Thanks for working back through the archives to share this one with us.

Thank you Minnie. Here's another from a different storm. A lot of ice making it hard for them to maintain their footing. Very politely waiting their turn, though. Matt

have seed, make friends. But seriously, if the line has more than five birds in it, you need to put up another feeder!!!

Good suggeston. Didn't know that. There's goes my retirement!

Problem with this day was the ice; they kept slipping off the bar. Funny to see.

Ha! I am sure your little feather friends will get a good laugh when you put seed in the feeders for them.

Matt's 365 # 24. At the traffic light with the FedEx guy.

He was juking and singing. Long light; I grabbed my Cybershot, took a hip shot through my window, not wanting to raise the camera to my eye to alert him, and got lucky. Each in his own world. I wondered what he was singing. Matt

Sometimes lucky shots can turn for the best Matt. It shows here, but maybe think of what kind of reaction you may have gotten by raising the camera? All required, would be to drive off !!! Either way, goal met.
