Recently a cardinal saw the chance to entertain residents in a backyard and pranced about and prepared for his performance. Checking around to see if those nearby were paying attention or not.

Not all residents were obliging though as it apparently interfered with other, more pressing matters.

But performers know the show must go on, with or without a willing audience.

    Wow! You live in Sioux City, Iowa. Most of my close family lives in Pocahontas.

      Nawfal,

      Hey. Small world isn’t it? Haven’t been to Pocahontas in a few years. Shot an assignment there a few years ago. How long have you lived and worked overseas? You have an interesting perspective in photography. Jerry
