Something of the marvelous

Wow, it seems like forever since I posted anything. I've spent the last couple of mornings out in the backyard looking for little treasures and this is what I found. 

First thing this morning I started taking photos of the Oak tree next to the house.  I have so many photos of this tree.  Today I found this Acorn cap cluster and thought it looked interesting. 

This female Cardinal landed on the fence near where I was sitting.  Then she flew into the tree next to me.

This is my favorite photo of her.  I love the side view.  What a beautiful bird!

I have no idea what this is but I like it.

Some type of Lichen/fungus growing on the fence near the house.  It reminds me of a coral reef.  Pretty whatever it is.
