just beautiful, I had one this morning at my feeder but sadly I did not have my camera with me.

I have sightings with male and female cardinals here too. But what made me surprised is that I haven't seen blue jay's which is weird. Great capture!

Two fantastic shots, Carletta. Both would look nice in a calendar...

Great capture!

I like the slight ruby on the tip of her lady Cardinal head. Her mate is bold and eye catching, the understated elegance is beautiful. Without the red feathers, we are not distracted and see her shape and we notice her seed-eating bill. She is polite, too! Wonderful!

Great photo, Carletta! I still haven't gotten a decent photo of a female cardinal...but I AM working on it. :)

Mimi said...
