Cardinal

I had thrown some seed out in the snow and sat on the porch trying to take some pictures.

Extraordinary photo Elaine, it's not so easy to shoot at sun lighted white snow without getting blown-out highlights, but you did it, not to mention the so beautiful little bird on it.

An excellent capture ..... I've seen the cardinals a lot this year, the male was here today but then the cats showed up too and he flew away. Having the snow as a background makes her stand out more... wonderful clarity and detail Elaine, excellent!
