This was a day that I went outside to take pictures of frost on leaves and found a better subject. “Mr. Cardinal at your service, thank you very much. But, you’ll have to be patient. I won’t pose for you. You’ll have to be quick, because I don’t stay in one place very long.”
My fingers froze as I waited behind the tree near the feeder. I tried not to move and could hear this little guy flying around me as he tried to find a secure place to land. Most of the time he was too far away for my camera to zoom in and get a really good shot. I was lucky with this one. I looked up and there he sat about fifteen feet above me in the tree. I had time for one picture before he was gone again.
