For many, many years I've tried to get a decent photo of a cardinal, those ever elusive scarlet beauties. They tend to be very skittish around people so by the time I'd spot one, off it flew because it spotted me. On Wednesday afternoon I was enjoying an iced tea at an outdoor table when one flew right by my table. I grabbed my camera in time to see it land on, of all things, the trash bin. I snapped the shot just before it actually disappeared into the trash-filled depths. A minute later it flew out with a piece of bread in it's mouth and flew away and out of sight. So, my dumpster photo will have to do….for now.
