Weekly Top Shot

All winter long, the shepherdess/s have been attempting to catch some photos of the cardinals at the feeders.  Many times there have been wonderful opportunities, but no camera within reach.  This fella sat, waiting patiently, in a tree right outside the kitchen window, a watchful eye on the feeder full of sunflower seeds.  He waited until the shepherdess tired of her perch on the step ladder and moved on to her chores, then he quickly flew down and sat happily munching away. 
Score: Cardinals - 15 // Shepherdess/s - 0

  5. These red birds are very special to me. I had the good fortune recently to spend some time with a sizable flock and never tire of their beauty, both male and female.

  6. That is stunning - such color. We don't have cardinals out here on the west coast.
