Very pretty with the snow. I really like the last one, Ed. That is my favorite type of shot! :snow:

I am having a hard time with cardinals. I have a couple of pics that are fair. Any tips you can give me?

Claudia it is all luck, my best Cardinal pic's had snow streaks on it so it looked all blurry, more fake than real.

Jane this prime bird feeding time around here, they need us more now than ever with the snow cover.

We know ed. Problem is with all these bills for medical, we knew we couldn't all winter this year, so we quit this early fall to give them time to move on.

The ones that stay will get fed when we have major storms as we did save a small amount for that purpose. :D We used to go through a lot and just couldnt' afford it this year :( Better to stop then, then to have to later in the winter :(

I'll enjoy them through everyones pics this winter though :)
