i love the shots of ms. cardinal! great job! my to-do list is usually just in my head and pretty loosely based. :)

Rural Revival said...

Awesome!! Lovely shots, was wondering when said tripod would reveal itself. : )

Barbara Lilian said...

Great shots of the birds, especially Madame Cardinal. My Mr. France is always telling me to use our tripod I'm an aim & shoot picture taker, thank goodness we now have digital cameras as I have to delete about 10 or more shots just to get a good one. I have a sort of to do list, mainly because I'm getting a bit forgetful.

You have been a busy lady, check, check, check!

eileeninmd said...

LOL, I have a list but no checks yet! I love your feathered friends. I should invest in a good tripod too! Have a happy Sunday!

My name is Riet said...

First I must say your photo's are so great. I love the cardinal. And a checklist, yes I love to make one in busy times.

Missy George said...

Lois said...

Love the bird photos.

Mary Jane Doe said...

Great shots! I love watching birds.

PlantPostings said...

I've been moving slowly through this weekend after Thanksgiving...trying to savor the slower pace while I can. But only 24 days until Christmas! I'd better get up and going!

Bonnie said...

My do list is as long as my to read list...then there is the list of what others think I should be doing! My tree is up, no ornaments at this point.

Sarah Huizenga said...

Great work with the tripod! My to-do list is long this week, so many things to accomplish before the holidays roll around again.

Willow said...

Beautiful and this reminds me to buy another 50lbs wild bird seed !

Michelle said...

Bravo! I love that last shot!

I'm terrible at setting up the tripod. My husband is so faithful with taking the time to use it. It really does make all the difference with photos. I'm sure your to-do checks will all be finished soon. Homemade granola. Yum. The weekend went by much too fast.

Thistle Cove Farm said...

Yes, my to-do list includes trapping the pesky squirrel who has taken up residence in my attic. He'll be taken far, far away and released; hopefully, never finding his way back. After him, the 'possum!

Cindy said...

My list of things to do doesn't have many checks on it, I seem to move from one thing to another and don't get much done, check. Wonderful pictures from your kitchen window. Yesterday I had a Thatcher come for a visit, I didn't get his picture though.

At Home in English Valley said...

Tired just reading your list! I'm cleansing the palette so to speak and taking down the fall. I'll have the tree up by the end of the week...Cards? Oh my, it's hard keeping up with you my friend! Love, Penny

Carol said...

Wow, great pictures! And look at all that snow! I am so not ready for that. I just got the autumn decorations down and will start Christmas this week. I'm going to try the tripod near my window, too. We get a lot of birds at the feeders.

Jen @ Muddy Boot Dreams said...

Now, is "she" a cardinal? Or a cedar waxwing? She's pretty anyways.

Oh you are going to love a you will need a remote set off the camera. Fun.


Nancy said...

Glad to see you're having fun with your new tripod, and coming away with lovely shots to boot. Ms. Cardinal looks pretty sassy. Squirrels are pesky, but I suppose we can't blame them for wanting to grab a snack. I'd say you're making good progress on your to-do list. Well done, Lynne.

Bonnie said...

I love love the bird photos. They are beautiful. I am not a good photographer and your snow is wonderful. You have much more than we do.

Anonymous said...

Are you happy with the tripod and is it making a difference for you?

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Ohhh..your pictures are gorgeous! I've never seen a female Cardinal before. She is lovely even if she is not all red. NO Cardinals here in Southern California. They are my favorite bird so I have them sitting here and there around the house. You KNOW how I love red.

Kerin said...

Amazing pictures. I love every one of them!!
I have a tripod that I leave in the car, and another smaller tabletop tripod, that I've yet to test out. I should do that!!!

Sounds like you are making a good dent in your "should do" list.
What a good feeling that must be.

We received a fresh new blanket of snow last night, and we will be digging out from under it for some time. Brrr... guess winter is finally here.

Warm wishes, my friend.


Paula said...

Yep I do make "to do list". You seem to be moving right along with yours.

Olive said...

The pictures of the feeding birds are clear and beautiful. I have a tripod but am far too impatient to use it-may need to rethink that. I make lists in my head but hardly ever complete them. Happy Christmas, Olive

A beautiful series of bird photos Lynne. You are a busy gal!
