A purple finch has been visiting my back deck for the past few days. He is just as red as he can be...but he is deemed purple. I thought he was fabulously adorned for the holidays and I was thrilled to be snapping pictures of him...I felt like shouting, "you look fabulous, who are you wearing?" But instead I was stealthily quite as I eased the sliding door open just enough to peak out and grab a couple of shots. I'm glad that the little things are enough to fascinate me.
