Cardinals in the Snow
A few photos taken through the window after it snowed all day. It is all I have time for at the moment. Sigh.
I swear she heard the click of the shutter even though I was in the house!
Love the colors! Not as flashy as a male, but I like the delicate tints.
I love a male cardinal in the arborvitae tree! There were at least four in the yard this afternoon, but the tree was too wet to be inviting, I guess.
Last year I saw seven males in this tree at one time. It was a gorgeous sight, but they scattered long before I found my camera.
The little junco is almost invisible when there are male cardinals around.
He is looking right back at me.
A Junco with fluffed up feathers looks like a little round ball.
The cardinals look rather odd when they fluff up, too.
There is food under that heavy wet snow, but it takes a lot of effort and energy to get at it.
