Ever since my dear wife Karen and I spotted the make and female cardinals during our safe walks around the neighborhood streets, we hoped for a backyard visit.
And I wished for the chance for a good photograph.
This has led to a lot of Karen calling me outside urgently from my keyboard tap-tapping in the living room.
I grab my iPhone 8 on the way out the back door.
Many snaps have been deleted.
This is my best, across the adjacent yard.
Karen did better on her iPhone 8, right over the adjoining fence.
We shall remain vigilant.
