Blizzards of 2010: Northern Cardinals

As I have mentioned many times, the cardinals are simply brilliant in the snow - even during the peak of the storms.
Even the female cardinals standout during the snow storm.
With the white or gray background, it seems easier to catch them in flight.  This male extends his wings with the feathers fully exposed.
This female is photographed making an approach to the feeder.
And this make is actually flying up to a tree limb, but he is flying away from the camera.  The result is a full exposure of his back and top of his wings.
