Red feathering immediately draws our attention to the cardinal. We can’t miss it. It is a stand-out bird. I have been wanting to capture a picture of a cardinal in my flowering dogwood tree. The Cardinal is the Virginia state bird and the dogwood is the state tree. Finally, I got my chance! Here is the photo, recently posted on my Instagram.
Here is one more photo of a cardinal perched on a pole above the bird feeder in my yard. He’s a beauty!

You may have recently seen the autumn photos of a Cardinal in my dogwood tree. Here is a picture of the dogwood tree in its springtime glory. My goal is to catch a photo of a Cardinal surrounded by white blossoms next spring.
I was longing for spring weather this morning when I had to scrape ice from my car windshield. Brrr.

Autumn has arrived and the leaves of my dogwood tree are changing. I captured these photos of a beautiful cardinal enjoying a bounty of berries. The cardinal happens to be the state bird of Virginia and the dogwood is our state tree! His bright red feathers are eye-catching, even when surrounded by colorful fall leaves. I was enthralled by his majestic beauty.

This dogwood tree is in my backyard and I was in awe of the dogwood blossoms that filled the tree branches. I was inspired to try to capture the delicate beauty of a single flower in a photograph. The petals are now long gone but the image remains.
