I've learned, over the last few years, that seeing is more important than getting a photo--but, I sure like getting photos!

We're here to enjoy it with you, bridget!

It must've been cool to see it flying so low.

Attachment 35310 Northern Cardinal

Nice. Look at the crest on that cardinal!

Don't take this the wrong way...but I looked out in my back yard and saw a cardinal and a titmouse--actually about 11 cardinals and two timice.
...but, I have to admit I'm getting cabin fever--just the other day I made sure we got out and drove to a park...lucky you and Roger get out so much!

Yes, we don't do much else, just the Peregrines, other birds and waterfowl and trying to get better pix than the last ones.

You seem to be very active.

Although I like to get out to other places, I'm hoping to eventually have so much beauty, natural habitat, and wildlife right here, so I never have to go far if I don't want to...or can't.

Yes, dap, that would be perfect! Every day though, we find something else. I was so frustrated today because I couldn't seem to see through the camera, eyes watering didn't help either. I'm thinking I may have to give up photography, then I probably won't be interested in going out. Then I'd just stay in my jammies all day...
