Hello my dear

I'm pretty far behind on pop culture now, so no surprise that I just learned the word "photobomb" yesterday. (Thanks to Tanya!) This looks to be a perfect example. In any case, these are wonderful shots !

I like that chickadees flight over the cardinal. I wonder who was in charge of air traffic control that day. :-)

aren't they just wonderful!

My Little Home and Garden said...

The chickadee has made a daring swoop to "photo-bomb" your collage. You caught it at just the right second!

Your cardinal shots show the beauty of the bird and it's bright, perky beak.

I can feel the determination of that chickadee's flight; a regular fighter pilot, it seems! The female cardinal seems apathetic to its force, perhaps ready to protect herself with her piercing beak!

Smooch. They are so sweet. Did they (it) scare someone else away?

Snap said...

I love cardinals. The Mrs. looks so pretty against the snowy background. Lovely!

What beautiful pictures in a lovely post! The cardinal is my favorite bird, especially in winter when their colors brighten my days.

The photos gave me a smile today!

What a sweet sweet bird. I wish we had them here. Is that a Chickadee buzzing Ms. cardinal? MB

Lowell said...

They're cute. They look a little more feathery than our cardinals, though. Probably 'cause they live in the cold, right?

Carver said...

Fantastic shots of the female cardinal. You show off her beauty so well with the lighting in these shots.

Lowell said...

Hi EG - the guys in shorts are from New York and Ohio, respectively. The guy in long pants is a Floridian. :)

Halcyon said...

I still miss the cardinals. The birds here are not very colorful. You got lots of nice shots of these ladies.

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

Wonderful set of images. I love the one with the Chickadee fly-by.

DeniseinVA said...

Oh my, your sunlit cardinals are gorgeous and I especially love the one where you caught the chickadee in the same frame. Fantastic post!

Fabulous shots of the girls, EG!

Liz@ Infuse With Liz said...

People don't pay enough attention to the beauty of the female cardinal but love their coloring. We are lucky to have a pair that stay all winter and we get to enjoy them frequently. Love the collage you created!

Daniel LaFrance said...

Very cool presentation. The individual photos are simply superb.

Kathy said...

I love the girls with the golden feathers. She reminds me of my Betty White.

Wow! They are lovely!

Cindy said...

When visiting my daughter I had a pair of Cardinals vising the window of the RV each day. Now that I'm home on the island there aren't any to see. Oh well, maybe someday they will make it this far North. Great pictures

Veronica Roth said...

Beautiful bird! Darn it anyway, each time I'm out east I look for cardinals and never see them. Guess I have to live vicariously. :) Hope your week is shaping up to be a lovely one.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

So pretty in the snow and beautiful light. I see a chickadee sneaking in there too!

They are beautiful! I had to lol at the chickadee photobomb.
