missing moments said...

Gawkers ... they are everywhere!:)

Kay said...

He's probably made because we are watching him bathe (LOL). Good photos. The other day I had about 3 or 4 birds in my birdbath at the same time. They were splashing water everywhere. Looked like they were having a water fight.

Hugs,
Kay

Julie G. said...

Gosh, he really does look like he would like a little privacy while bathing. He must visit your bath often as his feathers are so very stunning. Another fabulous post!

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

He's definitely not happy about something, maybe he's remembering something he forgot as he started to take his bath--I know I get mad at myself when it happens! :-)

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Your pictures are incredible! I want a new camera (and some new talent ;>). And some cardinals.

Susan said...

You are such a great storyteller. You should write some children's books, or maybe some for the adult children! Love the pictures!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

That is the REDEST bird I've EVER seen. AND...when I win my painting from you, and it's not IF I win, but WHEN I win, I'll take one of this pretty bird, please and thank you.:)

Gone Country said...

Love it! I never give them any privacy either, heehee, cuz they're so fun to watch!

littlethingsoflife said...

Maybe this is what it means to be 'at one with nature.' You seem to get inside the heads of your subjects and know exactly what they're thinking!! Your captions are as entertaining as your great photos!!! :D

edenhills said...

That is so cute! I love the comments.

Teresa

Marissa @Life On Our Side Of The Mountain said...

Haha! He looks like an "Angry Bird" in that last shot.

Roan said...

Cute birdbath! Looks more like a shower though, in the last shot.

Carole Meisenhelter said...

:) I've long admired these wonderfully colourful birds from your side of the world. For a long while I had a beautiful calendar picture in my craft room of one sitting on a snow-laden branch. I'm surprised then to see yours splashing about in hot Texas county. Beautiful photographs Theresa.

Barb said...

He's just happy you're supplying the bath water! The look is priceless.

Sall's Country Life said...
