Scarlet and gray...

...always a perfect combination.

...and a little white thrown in doesn't hurt either!

Your pictures are always so beautiful, and I especially love this one. It would make a nice painting.

This does look like a Christmas card. So stunning in its simplicity and complexity at the same time!

Jayne said...

What a beautiful couple!

Love their plump little bodies in this photo Kelly! Beautiful!

Roy said...

Yes its a nice combination Kelly, but we would rather not see anymore of it until next winter.{:)

Oh this is just a great shot, Kelly. Love the Cardinals. Wish we had them here.

Busy Bee Suz said...

So gorgeous!!!!

Roy said...

Good shot! And especially good for you for actually finding a female Cardinal sitting still out in the open. I find that the males have no problem sitting in the open for a photo shoot, but the females are notoriously camera-shy. Good work!

Cracking shot Kelly. The contrast between the birds and the background is spot on. Well done.
