Weekly Photo Challenge : Focus Cardinals in the Snow

_BCF3852

 

These were some photos I shot a winter or so ago of a cardinal. It looked so beautiful in the snow.  In the photo above I really wanted to illustrate how much snow had piled up on the bird feeder.  In this shots below, I  wanted to get just enough depth of field to have the cardinal sharp  in focus  and not a lot else. (please see second image below)

Below is another shot I took of a cardinal on the same day visiting a very snow covered bird feeder.

  8. I love cardinals! We lived in NC for 3 years and were always thrilled to watch such beautiful birds. We don’t have cardinals in Australia, so all the more special!

  11. Beautiful! We don’t see red birds around where I live — the only colorful birds I’ve seen so far are bluejays . . .
