Saturday Critters ~ 66 ~

New Jersey welcomed Spring yesterday,
in true New Jersey style, with 5 inches of snow!!

Every time it snows, I am sure it's the final curtain call, we'll see.

When the snow comes, the Cardinals come in close.
Let me show you how close, these images 
are straight out of the camera, 
they have not been cropped.





Isn't he gorgeous, sitting right outside my office window!
I know he can see me!

Sharing my images from March 20, 2015  with  
for Saturday Critters stop by and consider joining in,
any ole' critter will do!

Sharing also with Anni at I'd Rather Be Birding
lots of pretty birds there!!

Those are such striking photos. Love the redbird against the snow. Sorry you all are getting another dose of the white stuff. Maybe this will be your last.

I know - so much snow - but cardinals are so so beautiful in the snow! These are amazing shots, Debbie!

Muffie said...

What a handsome gent he is! His red feathers look even brighter against the snowy backdrop. I'm hoping this white stuff melts quickly!

FIVE inches! Totally unfair. Gosh I feel for you, it reminds me of our spring last year, it snowed and snowed and then it was suddenly summer! Yikes. Your lens is truly on target with such lovely captures! I have to tell you what my grandson said at the bus stop yesterday (our big Robin sighting day too) he says, "Look a red blue jay! " It was so cute.

karen said...

Soon all the white will be gone then all the colors will start to show, like those tulips your hubs planted that time. I hope they do well & you share a picture when there in bloom.

Sally said...

We celebrated spring in the same way as you did.
"Only" 4 inches here though.

Farm Girl said...

What pretty pictures! It seems like you get a bit of snow and the Cardinals and then the snow goes a way. At least I hope it works out that way.

Beautiful photos and what a handsome man! There are cardinals all over my backyard right now. I'm hoping with the rain coming later and the temps. in the 60's in Northern IL tomorrow, I hope the snow goes bye bye! So sick of it already!
