Classic Avoidance

by Kay~Kacey on 2/23/2011

I hate doing taxes. There I said it. So what did I decide was more important than working on taxes?? Bird photos of course.

It was a nice change from taking photos of the birds in the snow!

They all came out to play when it started to rain..

I swear that this guy knew I was taking his picture and was actually POSING for me.

Ah, spring. I can almost taste it… I will cover my ears and say la-la-la if anyone talks to me about snow and ice again. I’m just sayin’

Cardinals by SuperGuy

by Kay~Kacey on 2/10/2009

As most of you know, I love the fact that SuperGuy and I share the common interest in photography. Even if he did get more votes in the war of the roses. :mad2:

He was going to enter one of these photos in January’s Photo of the Month Contest, but he didn’t want to compete directly–cardinal to cardinal :mrgreen: — with my entry. (he’s either very nice, or very chicken 😆 ) So since I’m such a good wife…and I have no blog post for today 😉 I’m going to showcase some of SuperGuy’s cardinal photos. We both seem a bit addicted to capturing the perfect cardinal photo.

I love the composition of this one. The curving branches, the winter snow background, the splash of red of the cardinal.

This one almost looks like she’s paused to check out what SuperGuy is doing pointing that camera at her.

This one I love for the subtle colors he’s captured on the feathers of the female cardinal’s breast. Really love this.

Anyway, thank you SuperGuy for sharing your photos and helping me come up with a post for today. :mrgreen: I’m thinking SuperGuy and I will have a spring flower contest pretty soon. Please let it be spring flower time — Real. Soon. Now.

edited to add: I’m working on upgrading my wordpress install. Things will break. Smilies will probably be gone. Please be patient while I sort things out.
