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.

  1. She is very bright and red - good photos of the cardinal - I find them so wary toward any movement that photos are diffciult to get. Nice job - surely requiring patience.


I love positive comments, critical comments,and corrections most of all!
