Cardinal with Cold Toes


So when you're cold
From the inside out
And don't know what to do,
Remember love and friendship,
And warmth will come to you.

Cardinals remind me of my Virginia home. Beautiful!

Doesn't get any better than that!

oh so beautiful!
I love how you captured the snow around his little feet, I feel as though i could reach out and touch it!
And the vibrant colour of the red cardinal, oh that's something I wish I could see in person. We don't have cardinals here :(

Bless his sweet little heart. He is all puffed up, and his comb is down, he is cold. Cardinal Cold Toes. Hope he found a warm spot.

Thanks for sharing.

Great capture! The cardinals around here are much more slender and very jumpy.

I get so excited when I see a photo of a cardinal! I would LOVE to see one .... other than the one not-as-colorful one I saw in Central Park two years ago. My first cardinal!

Just a quick note to tell you I’ve nominated you for a “Versatile Blog Award”!

Don’t know what that means? Well, neither did I when I received this award last week from a fellow blogger named Karen at http://thewellseasonednest.blogspot.com/. I did some research and found a website http://versatilebloggeraward.wordpress.com/ that helped me a lot. I also began to notice, as I surfed around, the “Versatile Blog Award” button on some blogs I was visiting. Visit my blog to see the announcement of your blog as a recipient of this award.

Why you, you may ask? Because your blog caught my attention and inspired me. I love your photos and your quotes. I like the look and feel of your blog overall. You seem genuine, not self-serving, and not necessarily writing to accumulate “followers”, but rather with passion. Whatever my reason,it is a good chance for me to say “thanks” for delighting me through your blog!

This is a particularly gorgeous shot (so many of yours are). I have trouble photographing red subjects without blowing out detail, but this one is amazing.
