I am an early childhood educator at a small private school in Maryland. I was at home; enjoying my snow day; off from school. I set up in my kitchen; with my cat close by watching; and starting shooting. One of my favorite places to watch the birds is from my kitchen table; I have a large tree right out back and the birds go crazy when it snows. I snapped this image of a Northern Cardinal with my Nikon D3400. I love the image because you can really tell just how much fun this cardinal was having; hoping from branch to branch and getting his beak deep into the bird seed…which was covered with snow!
