Gorgeous Male Cardinal...

teasing me!!

I took these pictures with my 200 mm lens.
They were shot right through the glass of my home office window.

He was only a few feet away, watching me constantly then flying off.

Then his girl came...

she followed his lead.

Next time, those leaves will be gone and my view will not be obscured.

I liked these shots,
I like how the camera blurred out the leaves,
and focused on the cardinals.

Please stop by, it's a magical place!!


  1. Hi Debbie...They are lovely and i do like the blur and through the window ...I guess yours are pretty clean lol...!!
    You have a great observation lucky girl!!
    Wonderful shot!! : }

  2. I like them too. I am patiently waiting for the cardinals to come to the feeder. I guess it's not cold enough here yet.

  3. Beautiful. Funny that you show a cardinal. i have been looking for a cardinal ornament for my tree.

  4. They are so beautiful! I really love the third photo of the female cardinal but all are very nice!!

  5. I am still amazed at cardinals. We don't have them and I have only seen them in the wild once, so I love looking at pictures of them. Those are really good shots.

  6. Beautiful!!!! I wish I could get some decent bird pics. I'll need a new camera to do that. Someday!!!
    Love your pictures!!!

  7. They are lovely Debbie, I also like how the leaves are blurred. It's a beauty of a bird.

  8. They're really nice shots Debbie, the softness of the leaves in the foreground only add to their charm. I love Cardinals but they're very skittish and I haven't been able to get a good shot of them in ages. You've captured them beautifully.

  9. The females are my favorite :)
    At first, I was thinking those leaves won't be a problem much longer, but the more I look at your shots, I actually like the leaves being there. They make the shots seem so wild and natural. Getting a glimpse of something special through the leaves.

    Thanks for linking up, and your very kind words:)

  10. that cardinal is regal. great shots.

  11. As always, beautiful shots. I hope you have wonderful Thanksgiving plans. Hugs, Bonnie

  12. Beautiful captures of your Cardinals.
