Arm chair photography

I was sitting in my favorite chair today writing my post for this blog when I heard a Cardinal calling happily outside.  If the backdoor is open I can see the fountain on my deck from here.  I looked out and there, in one of the "cups" of my fountain was a large female Cardinal.  She had decided to use the fountain rather than the birdbath! I wanted to get a photo of her but I just knew she'd fly away if I tried to get close enough for a "great" pic so I just took it from my armchair, across the room and through the backdoor.  Not too bad considering the circumstances :)  Kind of made me wonder....if she can fit in a little fountain cup, maybe, just maybe, I could fit in the birdbath!  Nah, I don't think that's a good idea and I certainly wouldn't look as sweet :)

That really made me laugh - can we have a picture of you in the birdbath? I assume it is really hot over there where you are.... since we have our usual cold and rainy weather back now....
