Safflower seed is a favorite feeder food for the Northern Cardinal . The contrast was high on this bright sunny day back in February. Another image shot from a window in my house.

This photoblog is my nature journal and travelogue. Many of my wildlife images were made in environments impacted by humans. My goal is to feature each animal in a way that allows the viewer to sense the essence of its life in the wild. The purpose of the accompanying narratives is to enhance awareness and appreciation of our natural world, as well as to inspire everyone to protect and care for it.
