Open my eyes that I may behold wondrous things...Psalm 119:18

The female cardinal
Sees white snow fall.
O'er earth as she flies
With open wings...
Cheer up my friend
Winter will soon end....
Tho' it seems long
Your weary eyes
Will behold spring
To sing ...sing... sing
its wondrous song!
Poetry by me, AJP

Today we had rain and snow with another storm in the forecast predicted for early next week..I spent some time today shooting pictures of my feathered friends who were receptive to my shooting pictures of them while I knelt on the floor so that we met each other at eye level through the window.

    Thank you all so much for the comments...Leslie, the brush stroke look to this comes from the plastic that we put on the window in the winter to weatherize it and I also had a UV filter on my camera which gives it more of a warm tone...Then it was overcast lighting yesterday which brought out these tones all the more besides stopping down to F/18 to increase the saturation..
