Three Cardinals

Three Cardinals

I often see several male cardinals together but I’m not always able to get them in one photo, especially with snow as a backdrop. They were hovering in a protected shrub as the snow was quickly falling and swirling around.

    • Marie Therese, I don’t think you have them in Europe, at least not in your part of the continent–these are American Cardinals, meaning North America, and they can perk up a dark winter day like nothing else!

    • Wow, I really enjoyed my visit to your blog! I love looking at another’s prespective, especially in phoentics…is the slideshow an automatic WordPress thing, or did you set one up yourself?

      I couldn’t imagine not having snow. And the cardinals never look better than on a snowy day.

      • thanks, I am glad you enjoyed your visit. The slide show is set up in wordpress, when you upload your image at the bottom of that edit page there is a place to set up a slide show (not sure if you can do it in the theme you have here though), Let me know if you this was not clear, I know sometimes I think I am explaining it clearly, but…

      • I think you are a little more clear than they are because I thought it only made a slideshow of the photos in one entry, not all the photos you choose. I will definitely look into it, and I don’t mind changing templates!
