Alex and I went for a walk today. We went out to play in the snow and he asked if we could go for a walk. He loves to walk down through our neighbor's woods. Thankfully our neighbors don't mind. So we tromped through the 8 inch deep snow for a while. (That is a really good workout, by the way.) On the way back to the house, we spotted this cardinal in our other neighbor's lilac bushes. I was trying to quietly approach him which is hard when you have a 5 year old and a dog with you. :) But he wasn't going anywhere, so I was able to get about 5 or 6 feet from him before he moved to another branch. This isn't a great photo because of all the branches in the way, but I was so excited to get this close. I was really wishing I had my 55-200mm zoom lens on.
