Winter Guests

With the addition of some beautiful overnight snow, my backyard feeders have been particularly busy with all sorts of birds. The Northern Cardinals which prefer either feeding on the ground or platform feeders will perch in a nearby bush before flying onto the ground or the feeder to pick at the food. So I set my  digiscoping rig this afternoon and focused on the bush they perched in. Some of my favorite photographs are of Northern Cardinals with a snowy background.

  1. They always make me think of Christmas ornaments when I see them perching in a snowy tree. Lovely shots!
