Up On the Roof by AuntDot
Clear

Canon PowerShot SX260 HS; 1/60s, f/6.8, ISO 800, focal length 90.0mm
For some reason, this reminded me of the song “Up On the Roof” by the Drifters (1962), hence my title.

This male cardinal found a low roof on which to perch and eat his meal. Taken in Dunnellon, Florida, U.S.A.

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

  • Thanks so much, Sherri. Daisy doesn’t mind a bit…people on our walks always say “he” too. Guess I should put a big pink bow on top of her head. LOL

    Such a cutie…Cardinals are my favorite wild birds! fav.

  • Many thanks! They usually hide in the trees or fly by so fast that I can’t capture them. I was glad to see this one out in the open on that little roof!
