A red lady larking


I guess most people would say that the male cardinals with their bright red feathers are the prettiest. But, this female who was out scavenging for food with her man -- skippy around in the tree leaves -- is a very attractive bird.

The two were at the Mandeville Nature Center when I was there this weekend. It was my first visit-- won't be my last.

Wow, she is a looker! You caught her in a lovely pose. My aunt in PA had a nesting pair every year on her front porch that were exciting for me to see. . .we don't have cardinals here in the west.

Hey Steve, did you get to meet Bob from St. Louis Daily Photo while he was in your fair city recently?
