Three years ago two things happened, my husband was diagnosed with cancer and earlier that year he gave me a camera for my birthday. At first I wished he had got me an ipad, but now I would never trade my camera for anything. Those close to me soon got tired of my taking pictures of them, so I decided to look for more willing subjects.

While my husband was recuperating we would go on slow walking adventures and that is where I developed my love for nature photography. Even when I couldn’t get to go out in nature, I still had the desire to be photographing, so I decided to bring it to my backyard.

The following photos are taken from my kitchen, where it is now a joy to stay and linger, also making cooking less of a chore.

“Give us this day our daily bread.” Matthew 6:11 This young Cardinal faithfully waits on his father to be fed.

Young Cardinal & Male Cardinal

This Cardinal does not disappoint the young one as he feeds him. Our heavenly Father is also sure to feed us His little children each and every day, but so often we fail to see how we are being fed.

Young Cardinal gets his food.

After being fed, the young one still stays close to his father. May we stay close to our Father also.

Staying close to his father

This was the hardworking female. She made several trips to  my window baskets. Back and forth she flew, until her nest was finished. I never saw her feed the little one, so perhaps they each have their duties to fulfill.

Female Cardinal.
