Nature's Tree Ornaments

There are at least seven cardinals in this photo, but three are subtle females. My camera lens wasn't wide enough to  include all the cardinals in this lilac hedge!
Female cardinal.
The chickadees are tricky to catch on camera--they flit in, grab a seed and fly off to a branch to devour it, and they are vey quick.
Finally caught him.

Love the photo of the cardinals in the tree! We don't have them in the Sierras. :(

Oh my, that is so beautiful. They look so sweet and you even caught one mid flight!
