Cardinal Caption Contest

December 27, 2012 | My Jottings

I included this terrific photo in a recent blog post, and now here it is again. My friend Ember in England sent it to me because she knows how much I like cardinals, and what they signify to me.

It has been a very long while since I’ve had a bloggy giveaway, and I think it’s about time. If you’d like to see the last caption contest I had, click here.

Take a look at this male cardinal below. Doesn’t he look like he’s saying something? Or that he has something important on his mind?

Tell me what you think he’s saying/thinking, what the caption to this photo should be, and if you’re the winner, I’ll send you a gift! It might be a book, it might be a CD, it might be something yummy to eat. But I promise it will be good.  🙂

Wi-cheer! Wi-cheer! Purty! Purty! (That’s what a cardinal call sounds like to me…click here for a real recording of one.)

I look forward to seeing what you all come up with, and the winner will be announced on Monday, December 31st!

  14. Kay in UK says:

    Edith and Millie are laughing at me
    Saying I look like a twit in this tree
    It’s hard to be cool in such disgrace
    Huffing ‘n’ puffing, getting red in the face!

    So maybe this isn’t the best disguise
    To keep myself safe from their prying eyes
    Perhaps I need to have another look
    In my new Christmas Camouflage book!

  15. Just Julie says:

    Oh, you have outdone yourself here Kay! Your poems always brighten my day! Thank you! xxoo
