Happy 2008! While sitting at the kitchen table this morning, sipping on my second cup of tea and trying to warm up on the first real cold morning of the winter, I was enjoying the birds feeding in the back yard. Since my camera was sitting on the table within arm's reach, I shot a few images . . . not so much for reference material, as I have quite a number of good images saved for those purposes . . . but I could not resist the bright red of this cardinal who just sat and sat and visited for quite some time.
