As the cold of snow in the time of harvest,so is a faithful messenger to them that send him: for he refresheth the soul of his masters...Proverbs 25: 13

There is nothing more refreshing to the soul than to see a colorful male cardinal in the spring of the year. On this picture he was resting on the branches of a flowering crab apple tree just beginning to bloom.

I have been going back over some of my older pictures and this image was shot on April 4, 2007 with my old Kodak Easy Share DX7590 camera which had an amazing focal range for shooting bird pictures.

    Beautifully captured Andrea!!! The DOF is perfect. It is not the camera but the person behind it! I know people that have spent a lot of money on cameras and can't take the first picture.
