Be not forgetful to entertain strangers for thereby some have entertained angels unaware. Hebrews 13: 2

We are thankful the birds
Have sweet songs to sing.....
Lifting voices to be heard
With the joy that it brings...
God let us always be aware
That these birds of the air
Are as tiny angels with wings.....
Poetry by me AJP

We are thankful and fortunate to see the cardinals year around and they are some of the most colorful birds to bring us cheer in the cold winter days. I often wonder how they stop from freezing in our climate, but it pays to feed them through all of the seasons for them to be strong and healthy when the weather becomes a hardship for them. Some of the birds of course do not survive over the long winter... the ones who do are always happy to see spring arrive.

I was delighted to see the background diffused in a soft blue color behind the cardinal today. The snow reflected the blue light from the sky.

    This bird is loveliness, no doubt. But I also love how you managed the bokeh in this particular image, Andrea.
