Salt on a Bird's Tail
A lengthy tale you weave
and what shall you do on Hallows Eve?
A cardinal is red I know...
because Ohio tells me so...
..but on that night, when darkness comes..
Who answer, which will come..
..All Hallows eve, it is a fright..
..to be asleep on that night
but fear not for unlike most.
You are protect, Father, Son and Holy Ghost!

Oh, thy weary poets
who try so hard and know it
'tis a bird that is red
not a magpie nor is it dead
A simple cardinal with beady eyes
and keeps track of these silly lies
but he 'tis a beauty that's for sure
and once more, like Bob, there's no pentameter!
Nice photo, by the way!

A very nice capture from this bird. I read it is a cardinal. Splendid. Good POV,BG. Ful of fine details, only a bit out of focus. A nice fairy tail. Regards and TFS BOB
What a wonderful story. Your image fits perfectly to the story with his tail up, just as if it was talking to Olle its-self. Very well done with a lovely light coming in on him lighting the edges of the tail feathers and his colour rich red.
Slightly out of focus, was he a bit close for the lens focus?

Funny scene and very nice picture. I like its rich fine colour palette, excellent DOF and sharpness of the bird and mirror, nicely blurred BG and perfect composition. Bravo and my best regards.

beautiful photo, i like the pov (the bird from his back)
but if i hve to compare this photo with the one 2 photos ago,
i like the first one (2 photos ago) because of his open wings

I'm mad about Cardinals... I envy you!
And I had a really great time reading the swedish tale... Magpies are really intelligent!
Warm regards! Marta
