This male Cardinal came out of the thicket during a snow storm in order to get food at a nearby bird feeder. It was a fairly windy day but the area he chose to sit was the closest to some nearby pine trees which somewhat effectively blocked the wind.

Very nice shot. The falling snow tells the story.

Yes, the snowflakes and the lovely colour of the cardinal complement each other beautifully!

Such a classic subject. I like that the snowflakes have just a bit of definition, that makes it very evident what they are.

Nicely captured with the falling snow, can sense the environment.

Brilliant! I was just reading that cardinals are brighter red in the winter, and this proves it. Beautiful setting.

Great winter scene and the raised crest makes it even better.
