cardinal in maple tree branches


The cardinal and the maple tree buds glow with the red of coming spring color.

The birds all assemble in the tree branches when I appear on the deck in the morning, so they are easy shots with my camera. They begin squawking at me when they realize I’m not filling the feeders right away, but until they get too upset and start hopping around I can capture a few special images.

  1. I really miss the Cardinals … we don’t have them out here, but I grew up with them in my yard. Beautiful photo that invokes a beautiful memory.
