Snow Queen with Snow Beak

To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter; to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird's nest or a wildflower in spring - these are some of the rewards of the simple life

I do enjoy looking at your amazing photographs! You also find wonderful words to go with them: the rewards mentioned really hit the spot, and "bird chirping weather" tickles my fancy! Enjoy these last few days of 2010!

Beautiful cardinal! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas, Kerri, and that 2011 is a very good year!

so this is the female Cardinal, she is different to males, finer, more delicate looking, but no less beautiful.
Lovely capture, Kerri, thanks for sharing it.

Kerri,

This female bird looks pissed you took her photo. Maybe she knew she looked ruffled.

Jayne said...

She's just beautiful... but, she knows that, right? :c)
