Celebrating Cinco De Mayo in my Yard
When my wife wished me a Happy Cinco De Mayo this morning, I thought I might be looking forward to a wonderful Mexican dinner this evening (we have a number of favorite Mexican meals). But as the time drew closer, it became evident that there would be many dinner interruptions (an offer coming in and discussions with another client about a price reduction), so we decided that we would have hamburgers and defer the "celebration" until Sunday evening when it tends to be a bit quieter.
Our animal life around the yard thought there was no reason for them to postpone their celebration, so I snapped a few shots. Always the first birds of the day and the last of the evening . . . Mr. and Mrs. Cardinal were joined by a few bright goldfinch.
And earlier in the day, chipmunk decided to grab a little early celebration while the sun was shining . . .
Happy Cinco De Mayo everyone!
