  10. Your beautiful feathered friends do not seem the least bit deterred by the snow and cold, but I like you will be inside again today. I no longer venture out when it is snowy and icey outside. Beautiful captures. You must have a wonderful lens on your camera.

  11. Compared to the male cardinal, the female seems almost drab, but she has a peculiar beauty all her own.
