Cardinal in the Snow

Of all the birds that visit my backyard, I find myself most mesmerized by the cardinals. Between seed snacks from the feeder, this guy was hanging out in the snow watching the world go by. I still struggle to get a nice, clear, high-definition shot of a cardinal, but this photograph is at least better than my previous attempts so I’m encouraged by my progress.

  1. Cardinals are one of my favorite birds to see in the winter. Their brilliant red plumage definitely stands out against the white snow.

    • Aren’t they the coolest? I just need to keep practicing so their beauty turns out a bit crisper in my shots. Not always easy to do when shooting through glass from indoors (or with my zoom lens that doesn’t have a stabilizer) but I’ll keep practicing! After all, that is kinda the point of my site! 🙂

  2. The are so pretty and also quiet a sighting again the white snow. Wish we had such colorful birds over here. I tried a million times to catch some of the birds coming to my Mom bird house but they are so quick…hard to get a crisp image through a window.

    • Yes, it really is, but I’ll keep trying! When you come this summer, you’ll have to give it a go with me. There is usually a lot of bird action on the bird feeders and down by the garden. 🙂
