...there's no way she can see me now!

A male Northern Cardinal spies me with my camera and slowly goes into hiding...

Ha! Love this post Kelly! What beautiful, clear photos of that cardinal!! They seem to be a deeper red this time of year.

Heh, heh! Like little kids who hide behind their hands because they think that if they can't see you then you can't see them. Good shots!

Cute Kelly.... I love the color of the cardinals --but they cannot hide from much of anything... ha

LOVE the photos.
Have a great weekend.
Hugs,
Betsy

Lovely shots! Cardinals are so beautiful!
We have a pair that hangs around the yard, and it's so nice to hear the male singing his song.

Kind of a game of peek a boo.

So cute! I love cardinals--they have so much charm. They need to work on their camouflage abilities though!

Clever bird!

Great pictures, and that really sounds like a Cardinal. Either they have extra good eyesight or they are more camera/people shy than most birds.

Elaine said...

Ha, ha! As if with those bright red feathers there's anywhere he could hide!

That is so funny! I so miss seeing my State Bird while drinking my coffee in the morning on the patio. Out here it is only sea gulls, pelicans, and fly fish.

Lois Evensen said...

So cute! Can you see me now? Darling. What a pretty bird.

Roy said...

Great camouflage and very difficult to photograph. {:)

Playing hide 'n seek ... loved it.

Kelly said...

Thank you for dropping by and commenting!
...isn't he hysterical! I couldn't believe it when I was photographing him. Oh my gosh...he's actually trying to hide from me! I've never seen a bird do that before. He hung there in his "hidden" state for a few more seconds until I walked on, and he flew off.
