BIRD (MALE CARDINAL) WIKIPEDIA.jpgEveryday, Mr. Cardinal stops by several times throughout the day to feed at my feeder. He is so handsome in his red coat of feathers! I usually catch him at the feeder, on the shepherd’s hook, or on the porch railing. I keep a chair in front of the glass storm door and my camera on an end table in the living room. Whenever I spot him, I grab my camera. As soon as I start to tiptoe toward the door, he immediately takes off. He does it every time I try to sneak his picture. As I mentioned in an earlier post, he’s quicker than a speeding bullet and a streak of lightning!

Yesterday, he brought Mrs. Cardinal with him.BIRD (FEMALE CARDINAL) WIKIPEDIA.jpgShe is very beautiful in her brown and red coat of feathers! I can see why he married her. 🙂 The two of them were side by side on the porch railing right by the door, so I could see them very clearly.  As usual, I grabbed my camera and started to quietly tiptoe toward the door. But I don’t have to tell you what happened, do I? Yep, you got it! Both of them hastily took off together.

No, these aren’t pictures of them. 😦 I wish they were. These photos are courtesy of Wikipedia. However, I am still determined to get their pictures with my camera. If anyone can help me to succeed in doing so, please feel free to share your ideas with me because I am a desperate photographer trying to get at least one really nice closeup of this beautiful couple together (and at the rate I’m going, I’ll even settle for one of them.) 🙂

As always, this is from my heart ❤ to yours ❤ !

Maxine 🙂
