Photo of the Week Red ReflectionGazing into the shallow birdbath, this cardinal can look at his red feathers contrasting to everything around him. The bird is standing so still his reflection is perfect. Catching birds in action is not an easy task. Especially after you look at the rest of the birds fluttering around this birdbath.

Thank you CU photographer DaysatZion for submitting your photo this week. Look through DaysatZion’s Cedar Waxwings and Such gallery to see all the other winged-friends enjoying the birdbath.

Keep submitting your photos every week to the CU photo-sharing site. Each week the Photo of the Week is taken from that week’s submissions. You have to submit every week for a chance to be the Photo of the Week!

Keep submitting great photos even over the holiday season! I look forward to seeing what the New Year brings!
