Female cardinal in snow bokeh

    Newer Older

    We had tons of snow last year, which afforded us lots of opportunities to catch the birds at the feeders.

    I used this for our holiday card this year.

    Shot through the kitchen window using a Quantaray 70-300mm lens.

    UPDATE: I am so touched by all your wonderful comments. IIn answer to your questions, yes, the print is available for sale on my etsy site: www.etsy.com/listing/63153746/female-cardinal-in-snow
    For those that asked, my blog is: www.chroniclesofacountrygirl.blogspot.com/

    Thanks again, everyone.

      Altho the dog and candy cane are cute I think this should have won. Congrats on making it into Pioneer Woman's finalist tho, thats pretty cool in itself
