just a bit of my morning....

snow peaks and dunes from yesterdays wind~god it was beautiful~

no cookie does not go out~but every now and then she sneaks out behind me~she was not quite sure what to make of the snow! it did not take long before she wanted back in the house :)

i had a slew of cardinals both

male and female this a.m.

but by the time i got my

camera and made so much noise opening

the window all i could capture was this

guy waaaay off in the neighbors tree~

the males are just so stunning against

the white snow~

i will keep trying :)

Wonderful snow pics Tabby! My telephoto lens never seems good enough when it comes to bird pics, but I am also not willing to have a huge lens, so I guess I can't complain. Love seeing snow since we have had zip, zero nothing here yet. Your 'snowbird' pic is wonderful too!

Great pictures...oh, I love it when the snow is dry and the wind picks up and causes drifts...snow peaks and dunes! ;-)

That is funny about Cookie...I remember my girls weren't sure what to think about it either and it never took long until they wanted back in either.

I have never seen a cardinal before. :( We don't have them here! Wish I could see one for real. What is the difference between a male and female? Don't you hate it when you get the camera and by the time you get to the window or door and open it...they take off! LOL! Happens to me a lot! Keep trying for another shot...I'd love to see! ~me ;-)
