After a couple of weeks of battling a nasty sinus infection and all around feeling poorly, my wife chased me out of the house last Saturday & told me to get out there. She said taking pictures would make me feel better. So off I went and visited my favourite woods for a couple of hours (that's all the energy I had anyway...:lol.

Hadn't walked but maybe 20 yards from the car when I saw this spot of red in a tree. Sure enough, Mr. Cardinal, giving me the eye. Tight in the branches but enough open space for a fair capture.

Exibit 1.

A little ways further the ever present chickadees were doing their thing - looking for handouts.

This one was jumping around digging for sunflowers seeds.

Had enough of these guys and then I spooked a black squirrel that had its face buried in the snow looking for food. He jumped up onto this tree - white face and all when I snapped him (or her :?).

After that walking about I was pretty well done in, so headed home. But what should appear in a farmer's field but some whitetail deer.

# 3 Old Split Ear - (on the right) and mate?

Well, my wife was right - I did feel a whole lot better for the exercise and the pics. Sorry if I've taken up more than my share of space. Hope you like the captures. Cheers, Dan

Hey Dan, that a great variety of wildlife for just a 2hr outing. I love the Cardinal shots. We don't get those guys this far south. At least, not that I have ever seen. I hope you continue on the mend.
