Photo Shoot









Mr. Cardinal and I had a fun afternoon together. 
We've been having a little love affair going on
for two years now. ha.  He's so full of personality.
What a sweet little guy!

    1. yep, a little flirt he is
      and eats up the attention I give
      and dances as I giggle,
      doing that little jiggle.
      Maybe he's seen me sing into my spoon mic
      and liked it instead of taking a hike!
      lol...

    2. haha maybe so
      Or he thinks your one of him at your show
      After all bathing your feet in the sink
      To him could look like a bird bath I think hahaha

    1. Do you have a feeder there? That usually gets them to linger long enough for photos. :)

    1. Isn't he? He just has a twinkle in his eye that the other birds don't have!

  16. great set of photos. Our cardinals don't appear to be as orangey-red which may be, in part, due to the sun on his plumage.

    1. He was in the afternoon sun and it kind of washed him out! yes...a little orangey.

  17. Wonderful photos...your bird photos are phenomenal! I too noticed the hairdos on our feathered friends. Today the windchill is a bit over zero. Come on spring!

    1. haha....hopefully I read his mind correctly. Maybe he was really saying, "Fill the feeder already!" lol. But it was full, so hopefully he just likes me. :)
