1. Oh, George .... that is just so lovely!

Like a watercolor painting! The two birds posed so beautifully against the snowy backdrop.
It would make a beautiful Christmas card!

2. Would make a gorgeous holiday card!

Also would look beautiful printed on canvas, notecards or at least a coffee mug! When I moved to NYC for a year I rented apartment. Rather than take any art with me from my permanent home, I took pics of my favorites and had them printed on canvas. Worked out well, I had beautiful artwork on the wall with risking shipping the real thing.

This year for Christmas I took pics of a friends adorable dog and had them put on coffee mugs. They came out well 😉. Iím sure Shadow would be flattered to be on your coffee mug. I used website Zazzle.

3. What a lovely photograph. I love the detail and the hi-lighted color.

Even the composition of the two birds, one landing with amazing detail of tail feathers and the other calmly seated, but obviously puffed up for warmth. Wonderful. Thanks for sharing.

14. Not much mystique about it Mousetoescamper.

One of our kitchen window looks out on that tree and on the day of the shot my Nikon D3s was set to ISO 2500 and 5 frames per second. All I did was was wait at the window for a picture to happen. Happened to be a pretty good one. Thank You!!
