The View From Here


Some mornings at this time of year, cardinals appear in the bushes outside our home office window. The kitties sit on the desk and watch them. The cardinals don't seem to mind. The car in the background is actually quite far away, but appears closer because of the camera lens.

The kitties are thinking, "human! Open this window!"

Beautiful looking Cardinal. It looks like meditation time for this one. Nice shot!

What a beautiful sight, Lowell! I have only seen a male cardinal on a couple of occasions in the Montreal area, and they are very elusive! Thank you so much for sharing.

Lucky you! I had to go all the way to Arizona to see my first ever cardinals. They don't come to the West Coast. (But Costco does. That's a consolation. I'm amazed you don't have one. Ours is one of the reasons we decided to settle here.)

Always great to see cardinals. You have a a fine photo of this one. Good thing you have a long lens as around here these birds are quite shy.

What a beautiful looking bird! We don't see cardinals here.

It is a wonderful image of that beautiful and colourful bird.

You are lucky to have these beauties so close at hand. They are a rare group here in my area. And, when I do see them, they tend to be very skittish around humans.

Lovely capture. These birds are so beautiful.

They stay here all winter and it is so lovely to see them in the snow! Great birds. Like your pic, Lowell!

I am really enjoying photographs of birds more now since photographing them myself. Oh, how I would love to see this beautiful cardinal.

I wish we had more colorful birds here. Cardinals are so beautiful!
