I knelt on the floor to shoot this picture through the window when I noticed the wire trellis which hangs over the feeder that holds the suet container in place was directly in line with the cardinals head ...Consequently I had to get down lower.

Ironically with my kneeling, the cardinal didn't seem as skittish as it would have been had he seen me standing and allowed me to shoot several pictures ...It only makes sense when you consider how tiny birds are compared to humans. We must appear like giants to them. Naturally they like the illusion of feeling taller while we look smaller in their realm of vision!

Best View in Light box! Thank you!!!
