I have never noticed these rocks on the campus of Toccoa Falls, but this winter is so clear and the rains so heavy, that things that were once hidden are now exposed!
I have several pairs of Cardinals around the house and they rarely, if ever, let me take their photo. This morning one decided to pose for the camera. Thank you Mr. Cardinal! "You are beautiful in the snow!"
