Flowers - kjakes1
These are from my weeping cherry blossom tree, shot from underneath since there is activity of nesting going on.  Cardinals have been nesting here for years around this time every year.  So as quietly as I could be, I gingerly opened the front door and tiptoed out, sat on the front porch with my big lens, and looked up into the center of the tree.  Saw the female, she was somehow chipping off the blossoms every second or so, for what reason, I don't know.
