Catching the Reclusive One


He hides in the thickest thorn bushes.


He turns his back on me


But just occasionally I catch this classic beauty out in the open and manage to grab a couple of photos.

I never get this close to cardinals... not so far anyway. But I'll keep trying. :))

I like your hidden versions. Mine often hide, especially when they see my big camera lens.

EGWow, they are very shy aren't they? I wonder if they are extra cautious because they are so conspicuous?

Celeste said...

Leora, they do test your patience don't they! Worth persevering though, at least until your arms get tired from carrying the camera! :)

Beautiful captures of the Cardinals. They do seem to be shy birds. Lovely photos, have a great day.

I love the cardinals, especially in the winter.

Thanks Eileeninmd, have a great week :)

You are right Marvin, they are so cheerful in the middle of winter.
