These photos are really lovely. I hate the chaos of the shopping holiday, but I love celebrating the birth of Jesus. I tagged you for a meme today: http://awrungsponge.blogspot.com/2007/12/seven-things-crossed-off-my-todo-list.html

I also don't like the hustle and bustle of Christmas...and shopping stresses me out BIG time!

Love the Cardinal pictures...they certainly are brilliant against the greenery and snow.

Paulie said...

Fantastic! It would make a wonderful Christmas card. . . beautiful enlarged!!!!!!!!!!

I wish I could get a closer shot at birds. I also don't have a bird feeder.

Iam also jealous of your snow. We got some Saturday for two hours but it melted when it hit the ground.

Gudl said...

That is a wonderful picture!

bluemountainmama said...

we had our first *real* snow, yesterday, too. and also lots of birds at the feeder. i tried to capture a cardinal and he kept going higher in the tree. you captured yours very well.... your photo inspires me to go try again! :)

The Cardinal makes a fine subject. Very nice image.
I feed the birds but get mostly small guys like finches and nuthatches. When it snows, my feeding area becomes very popular! Slackwater

Lovely the photo with some amazing colours.

happyone said...

I think these are the best pictures I have ever seen of a cardinal!! They are beautiful.

Lilli & Nevada said...

That is a picture perfect photo.

I don't do any x-mas shopping anymore, no kids close by other than this yr, i have gone to gift cards, they get what they want.
And hubby and i don't buy for each other anymore as we buy what we need when we need it, need to downsize.

June said...

What a great shot of a beautiful bird...it could be in Nat'l Geographic for sure! I'm with you about the stress that's thrown upon us this time of year. I hate feeling so pressured and have removed myself from it as best I can...easier since no children around.

dot said...

You did a great job photographing the cardinal!

Moi said...

oh isn't she a beauty!!!! these pics have the Christmas card beauty......am glad to hear you are feeling better......don't tire yourself out, Kerri......have fun :)

Dusty Lens said...

Birds of a feather flock together, or, something in that manner. I too feel the same way about this comercialised holiday. but I digress.

Pretty pic and capture of this cardinal. Take time for yourself and just watch his antics, really quite a fun way to burn tons of pics in the memory card.

photowannabe said...

Glad things are going better today. I'm finding this year that I'm not as stressed about the holiday. Perhaps its because we have moved and can develope new traditions and being closer to some of our family I think helps.
I just have to remember the reason for the season.
Beautiful shot of the cardinal. Its a greeting card if I ever saw one.

ro_pumpkin said...

thanks for your visit .
wonderful capture , the red is great against the rest .

imac said...

WOW what colour the bird is. nice photos.

The story continues in my blog.

Anna said...

Wow what a contrast of the cardinal and the background. They are definitely cool birds to watch, and actually to listen to. Anna :)

Willard said...

Excellent cardinal shots, Kerri. I think the snow really sets the bird off.

I like to videotape birds and other wildlife in the falling snow as the falling flakes seem to add a mysterious, wild, look to the shots.

Andrea said...

Beautiful red bird and the snow makes me want to sing....IT'S BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE CHRISTMAS.......Your pictures would make gorgeous Christmas cards.

Salty said...

I simply adore these shots!

Red Cardinals, white snow and evergreen, it just doesn't get any better than this!

Robert - Birdwalking said...

Very nice capture of your state bird. We haven't seen any around here yet. Once they discover the feeder, there should be a few visitors. Birdwalking

Robert said...

That should be Birdwalking :-)

Rick said...

NICE contrast!!!

Isadora said...

Oh and what color it is :) This beautiful Cardinal is Christmas all by himself.

Me said...

Cardinals are my favorite bird since childhood. Very nice pics, and such beautiful scenery... love those birds.

RuneE said...

You have shown us the importance of a spot of red in the picture.

Well done!

Daniel J Santos said...

Beautiful colors, well catch.

Neva said...

this is such a sweet picture. I hope you are less stressed now.....I agree that the season has gotten away from us all but it all works out ultimately! Have a good week.

MedaM said...

Ah, this is great. What a lovely red bird!Wonderful shots, indeed.
Have a relaxing weekend!

Laurie said...

These are gorgeous! Perfect seasonal images.

I haven't started shopping yet. I came down with the cold that won't let go and now I'm way behind. :(

Catherine said...

Beautiful shot's of the cardinal..gorgeous!! He really popped with the green of the tree, and the white from the snow...looks like a xmas card!! :D
Enjoy the weekend!

Lizzy said...

I would just love to have such brightly coloured birds in my garden, but I live in hope, I have asked for a tall bird feeder contraption for my birthday, so I hope I might attract some more

Irene said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I LOVE your photos! That cardinal looks amazing. I am keeping an eye out for some winter birds to try my hand at photographing.

John Roberts said...

I agree with your thoughts on Christmas totally!

These are wonderful photos! I have always wanted to capture a photo of a Cardinal (my favorite bird, and NC's state bird) in the snow, but the birds and the weather haven't cooperated with me yet. Maybe one day!

bonnie said...

These pictures are so beautiful. We had starving birds on our empty feeders this morning. We quickly scrambled to fill them.

NorthBayPhoto said...

Very beautiful colour! Great shot.

Thanks for visiting my NorthBayPhoto blog.

mon@rch said...

The cardinal really have some perfect Christmas colors!

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

WOW! Fantastic color on these! So pretty. We had a cardinal today but it was freezing rain and dull as dirt--I didn't even try. These are great!

JAM said...

Wow, what a handsome bird! He really stants out.

It always feels great to know you have most of your shopping done. We still have a long way to go.

Oswegan said...

That's cool, I've never seen one of those before.

Rhea said...

Gorgeous. My favorite bird. I have seen a ton of them for some reason this year up here in Boston.

Tamika said...

This is the state bird for NC...my home state. You nailed this one and the color is so vibrant!

Ms. Math said...

These pictures look like they belong on a Christmas card! The colors are stunning! Very nice work!
