How to take photos of cardinals

Step 1. Grab a digital SLR camera --preferably Canon ;-)
Step 2. Put on a telephoto zoom lens
Step 3. Find a nice picnic table in a brushy area
Step 4. Throw out some cookie crumbs
Step 5. Focus
Step 6. Shoot.
Step 7. Keep the cookie crumbs coming and so will the birds.


  1. These are wonderful, Shelley. Seriously good lens! These would make fabulous cards!

    I hope you're having a wonderful holiday -- Have a very happy new year. (I'm wrapping your wedding gift this week and will try to get it in the mail Friday or else Monday!)

  2. Cardinals ares such gorgeous birds and I wish we got them over here but they are not birds we see here. You certainly did get some delightful shots of them!!

    Wishing you and yours all the very best that 2009 has to offer, dear Shelley. xoxo

  3. You are good, young lady! Very good!

    It was a great day, wasn't it?


Would love to hear your comments!
