Will You Marry Me??
I was thrilled to be able to capture this tender moment with this Cardinal couple. The female sat on a limb - while the male went to the feeder and got a seed. He came back to the limb and fed it to her.

I understand, from some research on Cardinal habits, that this is a mating ritual and will continue until the pair's eggs are being incubated.

They are so sweet!

Judy, your bird photos never cease to amaze me. This is such a sweet and tender moment captured so beautifully. And just like a male...doing what is necessary to show off to his lady.

I always wonder how the judges judge. They seem to give awards to images I wouldn't, and miss images which I would.

This is a winner in my eyes. What a wonderful capture, Judy!

Thanks for sharing.
