In an effort to notice more of the ordinary in my life, I have decided to share what I have noticed this week in Take Three Thursday. The idea is to take 1 - 3 photos that are linked some how; by theme, by colour, by date, by moment, by points of view. There is no formal link in but please feel free to join in. What have you noticed this week?

This week I have been most fortunate that my patience has paid off. The very nervous male cardinal that visits my garden & feeder, finally has enough confidence in me not to fly too far if I'm in the garden. Earlier this week I saw him in the garden, I quickly crept outside with camera & stood very still for the longest time so that he would return to the feeder.
He first landed at the bottom of the garden on the fence & he sang a little. I thought oh aren't you gorgeous, but not a muscle moved nor a sound did I make.
He bravely then landed on one of the big rocks, OK this is going well, be still be still.
Next he flew the closest he has ever been while I'm in the garden - to the ground below the feeder. I just about squealed with joy. He enjoyed some of the past their sell by date cranberries I had thrown out earlier along with the nuts & seed of the blend I buy.
Such a magnificent bird with one of the most beautiful songs.
It is true, small joys are every where, we just have to be open to see them.
