I Got Him: Part ONE
Remember my whining about not being able to get a Cardinal on camera???
So it went down like this:
We got the foggiest day we have had yet this fall.
I look out the window at the lake, like I always do.
Sitting in the apple tree...
in the FOG
was my elusive Cardinal!!!!
I run to get my camera...
And he sees me coming to the window.
I thought for SURE he would fly.
Instead, he tries to HIDE:
He thinks the branch is hiding him:
But I was patient.
And he finally relaxed a little.
He started downright showing off:
Showing me his wonderful backside.
His gorgeous plumage.
And then, he gave in.
He blessed me with a front shot:
But enough was enough.
But at least I got some chances to catch him on camera.
he came right back!!
To give me some more chances!:
I wished it was a clearer day to get clearer shots.
But hey, I wasn't complaining!!!
He gave me some time to catch his gorgeous self:
And so much so, that I have enough for a second blogpost!
I retired in June 2008 and started my blog in November 2008. I worked at several jobs as a Registered Nurse prior to retirement. I LOVE being retired! Blogging has offered me a whole new venue to start writing again and to share new hobbies such as gardening, birdwatching and sharing my nature photography. If you like my blog, PLEASE click on "follow this blog". Having a lot of followers reading my blog gives me incentive to continue to do photography and to continue to write. I also LOVE comments, so I encourage you to leave me a comment after you read my posts. Thanks everyone, for taking the time to read me!!
