I spent awhile today standing outside and trying not to shiver so I could photograph these beauties! This is the biggest congregation of cardinals we've seen here, with at least three males and four females. Enjoy!
The ladies seem more social than the gents.
Still, they, too, can appear...supercilious.
They apparently had a luncheon date, which they reluctantly shared with a starling
While the gents looked on...
Not deigning to descend to the ground and mingle.
A lovely lady, checking out the eye candy:
A bright male illustrating perfectly why we call them cardinals.
Another lady puffs up against the chill
While these gents keep tabs on each other.
Such gorgeous, welcome guests to our diner...
Shy and contemplative at times...
But oh the looks they can give us!
