Cuteness Overload


This young male Northern Cardinal knee-deep in the snow gets my vote on cuteness overload.  😊

  1. What a lovely series of this resourceful male cardinal, Donna. It looks like there are seeds (from a feeder?) under him, and he’s found them and having a great day. That last photo, with his coy pose, is truly adorable.

  2. Definitely ‘coy’ poses! Cardinals in snow are a wonderful color contrast. Thanks for sharing.

    • Thank you, Deborah! I think he’s got a sunflower seed he found and ran away with to a perfect spot for me to photograph him. I did put out a feeder to try to attract the Cardinals I knew were around this past fall. They have only used the feeder during the snow. Last couple days they’re back in the trees eating the berries and scavenging the yard. 😏

  3. Hard to beat that for cuteness!

    We’re having similar weather issues to that white stuff in your images. Today we have received almost a foot of sunshine and more is scheduled for tomorrow!

  4. Thanks for my dose of CUTE!!! They look particularly cute against that white snow background with their scarlet red feathers. ☺️

    • Thank you, Gunta! I just cannot stop taking photos of the Cardinals in the snow. Always dreamed of having this kind of opportunity! Things work in magical ways! ☺️

      • You could be right! I’m finding that there are benefits to staying put in one place long enough to really get to know the neighbors and the neighborhood… especially the feathered ones! πŸ˜‰

  5. When there’s no unfrozen water to drink I guess snow is a good alternative. Very adorable! I like the last one best, with his head slightly cocked. πŸ™‚ ❄️
