Red Is For Luck

The Cardinal


Nothing makes me feel better than to wake up in the morning with blue sky and sunshine. It energized me instantly, and the day seemed to be happier for some reasons. This cardinal greeted me when looked up. He stood there for a very long time watching me.

Another Beauty

Behind my garage where there wild grape vines, I also noticed that there were two different pairs of cardinal. They stayed close together, flew together, and if one moved so would the other.

Hidden Behind the Branches

This spot became my favorite spot to look for birds, and to claim as my own space to take a breather. To stay out in this weather, I doubled up my clothing, with hat and mittens. Watching the birds, snapped some pictures, and free my mind was all worth the numbness feelings on my fingers.

HAPPY NEW YEAR

You certainly got some good cardinal pictures. That first one is so bright that it almost looks orange. I really like that one.

What a great picture - and a beautiful blue sky. Thanks for posting it because I've forgotten what blue sky looks like as we just have grey sky and rain.

I just love cardinals! We had 3 that lived in a tree outside my house growing up and I just loved getting to watch them fly about!

oh, love that shot of cardinal too, with his stare so intense maybe looking for some interesting food up there in the tree against the blue sky.

Blue skies and sun truly are invigorating, Nice photo of the cardinal.

Happy New Year and all the best in 2012!

Fabulous pictures. I've always loved cardinals but I haven't seen one in many years. The beautiful Indian golden oriole has almost made up for it.

Three months left out of my four in India...days are passing too fast.

Love and best wishes for the new year.

I love the Cardinals! They give such a splash of cheery color on a dreary winter day.

Woke up to cardinal song this morning. What a treat on such a cold morning. I'm glad you kept on their trail to bring us such lovely captures.
