  13. Oh yes, I love Pat Tillett's word "embiggen"!
    The cardinal is such a lovely splash of color mid-photo. We don't have cardinals here in eastern Alberta.
    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  16. There are shadows all around - they are just a bit subtle...the tire tracks have little shadows aside the tread lines and the hand is kindly pointing that out. The three ponds have shadows too, in B&W and color too. The squirrel looks lie a silhouette, a shadow on the branch. Neat captures around the woods...

  19. Oooooh! Love the shadow/reflection shots! Yes, I like them both!
    I still can't 'imagine' the cardinal's shadow - but it's late and my old eyes are tired. :)
    Have a GREAT weekend!!!!

  20. Love the puddle shots! They remind me of the artist Escher.

  21. Great shots once again! Prefer the color over the b/w this time around. And the cardinal!! Wow! Nice punch of red amongst the foliage. Love their songs too.

  23. These are all very good shots! I want to be on that country lane with the puddles, with my dual sport motorcycle!
    I do see the darker area of the cardinal's shadow. Great capture there for sure!

    Peace

    Embiggened is too perfect ! LOL
    I actually saw the cut out on the bark before I "embiggened" the shot .. very funny indeed !
    Love the series of puddle shots makes you think of different things .. a bit of a brain "tug"
    Joy : )
