Ahh, what a wonderful capture! :)
Oh what a beautiful fellow. I was trying to get a few pictures of birds this weekend but they moved too fast for me.
Wow what a stunning little fellow! Great pic Ally!
Beautiful! I hope to get a telephoto lens someday. I'm looking forward to more of your photos.
Well, that is just plain gorgeous! What a beautiful winter site. Great photo too!
Oh, how beautiful! A telephoto lens, eh? Nice present! :o)
Ooooh gorgeous!!! I adore cardinals. Personally I love summer and hummingbirds because I can get right up close to them around the feeders. My itty bitty camera isn't much for zoom, but I love nature shots!
This is so beautiful. Amazing photo.
How delightful. You lucky gal - I'm sure you're having a wonderful time playing with your new lens.I find the expression the 'dead of winter' so interesting - because in reality - there's really so much going on underground that its anything but dead ... ;-) I'm sure you're looking forward to spring after the wretched winter you've had so far. I couldn't believe how cold it was the two days after Miz T's wedding - brrrr - haven't felt that kind of cold since Germany.Hugz
wow - what a beautiful bird!!!!!
Love Cardinals! Great Shot!
oh wow, I want that lens too! I would have needed it very much when I saw a fox on Saturday. unfortunately it was too far away and I'm not very happy with the photos I got. but your picture here is beautiful!!Maiken,Maikeni blogi - part of me
I was always told that cardinals are a omen that you're going to have guests visit your home soon. As a kid I believed it but never had proof that it was true but even still now when I see one, I can't help but think, 'shoo, bird! My house is filthy! No company today!'
It truly is! Though we may very well have them here on the west coast (ornithologist or avid bird watcher I am not), it took moving back east to Toronto before I saw my first cardinal in person. It was perched atop a high street light over looking a wide multi-lane street and very nearly took my breath away. Their vibrant ruby hued plumage is gorgeous to the point of inspiration!rnithologist
Aww....what a beauty. I always try to take pictures of wild birds in my backyard. Cardinals don't live in this part of the US, but I wish they did! They're brilliantly colored and so cute :)Thanks for sharing this picture! I'm a crazy bird lady, so I appreciate posts like this :)xo Azu
Cardinals always make me smile. You captured this one beautifully.
