Random Photo Thread III

Since the old one has been lost in the mists of the past, I thought maybe a new photo thread was in order. If the Admins don't want it here, I don't mind if it goes away.

I took this photo 3 weeks ago, after our last snowstorm. This house finch was sitting in the tree outside our bedroom window. It came out so nice that we decided that it will be the cover image on our Christmas card this year.

It's really good to see you back Rick. You've been missed. Welcome home again!

Love that picture of yours and it will make the perfect Christmas card for 2020.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

Love that picture, Rick. I once read a description of a house finch as looking like a sparrow dipped into raspberry juice. Looks like your little guy was held under a bit.
