Resting above the Feeder

As you know, I love Cardinals and show them often … I’ll continue to do so.  This handsome fella was awaiting another turn on the feeder below.  Something caught his attention just as I snapped his image.

Well, two Male Cardinals and a large group of Sparrows a, some what blurry, Breakfast makes.

Male Cardinals Feeding

This is not the shot I was hoping for.  There had been twelve Males on the ground when I went to grab my camera – I came back to the window and a good many had been spooked off.

Male Cardinal Ground Feeding

He was just finished eating a seed when he raised up for this image.  The Sparrow just happened to be feeding also.

This handsome gentleman is a regular at our garden feeder…feeder is just below him on another branch.  He spends time flitting back and forth from the feeder to the ground and seems content most of the time.

Cardnals gathering at the Feeder Tree

It was really snowing this day and the Cardinals were gathering in strength at the feeder.  At one time I counted eighteen!  I realize it’s hard to see them as the snow was really coming down.

These beauties would feed below then come up into the tree to rest and keep a look out.  It was a beautiful snowy morning.

Peek-A-Boo to You

This Male Cardinal seemed determined I would not get his image.  I waited about a minute, camera in focus, before he turned his head toward me.  Fortunately, the feeder was almost empty.  I used my 75-300 Canon Zoom Lens for the shot.

This gentleman decided to claim the Feeder for a spell the other day.

Birds at the Feeder New Year’s Day

Birds at the Feeder New Years Day_edited-3_wm

I shot this image yesterday.  There were only a couple birds at the feeder.  Two Male Cardinals and one Junco.  A bit of the ole, De Ment, luck.  I just happened to hit the shutter as one of the Cardinals was in motion.  The other Cardinal is almost hidden by the dark of the window and the Junco looks on from the upper right. I have a good many images to load over the next few days.

Male Cardinal in Study

In January 2014 I posted this image and thought it would be a good way to finish out 2017 – many of you really enjoyed his peaceful posture and apparent disregard for the winter weather.

This is what it looks like.  I posted this a year ago but thought it might be something for my new followers and friends to consider.
