Camera Critters - Cardinal


We have a family of cardinals in our yard year round.  The male seen here in the crabapple tree is a favourite to photograph, especially in the winter against a snowy background.
The purple paw on the sidebar will take you to see more Camera Critters.

  15. What a very bright and colourful bird - our UK birds are much more demurely dressed.
    I love your header - but then I love lavender though it doesn't grow well either in pots or in our heavy clay soil.
