Got my eyebrows waxed for this? by 

I was hiding in my bird blind, taking lots of cardinal shots yesterday. They were everywhere! I was especially drawn to the female in this picture. Her eyebrows were noticeably red and well-defined, her “coiffure” fluffy, and her little nails so dainty. I couldn’t resist putting her together with a male I also photographed on the same branch. He was looking into the distance, his left leg tucked into his breast feathers; he seemed to be daydreaming. If they were human, the female might say, “And this is why I got my hair done, my nails manicured, and my eyebrows waxed? So he could lose himself in that boring game on TV? I think I’ll go shopping; he won’t even notice if I leave!” BAM (That was the door slamming for added emphasis of Madame Cardinal’s indignation!)

I hope no one minds my antics; it’s raining today and there’s not much more I can do. (I’m postponing baking a lemon pie for a lady’s’ supper tonight. Our husbands are fishing for the weekend!)

    Eye brows? Hmmm, that reminds me…ouch, but a wedding approaches so a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do.
    A thoroughly enjoyable flight of fancy, Bonnie, great fun and a delightful image

  • Thank you, Jesika! Love that you joined me in my flight of fancy! Rainy days can be fun! By the way, I did get that lemon pie baked; it’s smelling pretty good in my kitchen right now.
