Cardinal in the Snow

I put out some bird seed today on the deck and was waiting to get a close up of a bird. This Cardinal kept her distance and sat on the branch in a nearby tree with the snow falling down.

It was a beautiful snow but unfortunately I haven't been able to get out and get any good snow pictures. It's supposed to snow a little more tomorrow so hopefully I can get out then.
Would make a fabulous Christmas card. I love how just the Cardinal has color and the falling snow is so majoical. Fav.

This is the first photo I viewed this morning and WOW, how awesome. Outstanding shot of the great lady of all birds. She really stands out in that magical snow scene. Why don't my birds pose like that for me? :-) This is a huge, huge fav. Congrats, Cindy.

That's a Christmas card, for sure.
It's exquisite...the foggy grays, the pop of red from the bird and the little twigs and buds.
It's a shame she refused to enjoy your hospitality, but you still got a GREAT shot. FAV!
