Great shots including snowflakes and bird food. I notice most of you use some kind of mix for bird food. I use only the black oil seeds(sunflower).

Marie said...

Really beautiful shots, Carletta.

Now these photos show their personalities beautifully! Great photos Carletta, if I was a bird I would be doing a happy dance on the third photo.

Gorgeous shots! The colour of the male is amazing.

Excellent photos of the cardinals.

great images!
I never tire of capturing images of cardinals. They bring color to the b&w landscape in winter.

Linda said...

Wonderful photos! We have a couple pairs of cardinals in our yard (in Virginia) and I never get tired of seeing them.

Wonderful shots! I just love cardinals. I can never seem to get my birds to sit still for macro shots.

Karen @ away for the weekend said...

Absolutely beautiful! My Cardinal has such a handsome profile and his red coloring is stunning against the snowy backdrop. Mrs. Cardinal is so much prettier up close than I realized. Lovely captures!

Mr Red seems to be enjoying his meal in the snow while his lady friend looks on.
I adore photos with the snow falling- great captures, Carletta.

Hope your day is going well.

Beautiful Carletta! You know, usually I say the female is more beautiful than the male Cardinal, but your shot of the male is stunning!!

Theses are such great birds - I love to see some again.

I think the fenceposts in my picture are a really important part of the image.

Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW.

Great shots!

These are great portraits of Mr. and Mrs. Cardinal. Mr. Cardinal seems to be rather stern. I wonder what he's watching?
