      1. Please do not ever apologize for when you do reply. I myself answer comments over a period of days. I just will no longer run ragged trying to catch up on all the comments and what all else I do in just one day. ENJOY your cabin! That is what life is all about!! 🌈

    1. Nincompoop is really a word. And it does sound funny! Brings a bit of humor to life, if you know what I mean. That female cardinal … I agree is a winner! And those moody images … I deliberately edited them to get them even more moodier. Thank you kindly for your wonderful comment! Have a great weekend!! 🦋

    1. Well! Let me tell you this! One of the definitions of this word when I looked it up to make sure it was appropriate for what I wished to portray was …. a word an older person uses. SERIOUSLY??? Now I feel SO much better when you told me that you called your son a nincompoop. LOL Oh my goodness this is so funny! 😂😂😂

  2. Hopefully it is the last hurrah for you guys! It’s been lovely here in the UK – like early Spring. We’ve had some small birds scouting nests lately. Last year we had lots of snow. I feel for your birds – it must be so cold. Beautiful shot of that proud Cardinal! Let’s hope the groundhog was right! Enjoyed the great photos, and looks like lots of wind damage. Stay warm my friend!! Hugs! Donna

    1. Oh I’m so happy for you that Spring-like weather has arrived. That gives ME hope! Last year was miserable with a capital M! And thank you on the Cardinal …. she was magnificent! Yes, Donna, we’ve had wind storms with winds of excess of 70 mph. No damage to our home or property, though, thank goodness. It was so strange …. one minute no wind and then WHAM the wind hit our home like a truck! Big hugs back to you and I hope you have a great weekend!! 🌈

  3. Amy, what can I say?! You made me laugh soooo much with the ‘clueless nincompoop’! Never, ever, heard that expression, but it is so funny to pronouce it! 🙂 Stunning pictures, love the costrast of colours! Amazing work with photos and definetely with words/ expressions! FIVE STARS for me! x

    1. I do love that word nincompoop, don’t you? It really says it all. I actually looked the meaning up to make sure it was exactly what I wanted to portray what I wanted to, and to my amazement one of the meanings was …. a word old people say. I laughed SO loud and asked just who the ______ wrote that stupid definition? Define old for starters and I really didn’t think words had an expiration date to them either. 😂😂😂

      Thank you SO much with your compliments on my images. Your words mean so much to me. I’m just thrilled you enjoyed them. You give me 5 stars? Wow!!!! Much Love to you! 🦋

      1. I LOVE words, and I’m so glad you totally get that! My imagination ran with this word as the story unfolded seemingly all by itself narrated by the Cardinal. It’s so much fun to let the imagination go! 😂

      1. I know, I think they may huddle together, but am not sure. So much we don’t know about their lives. My novel is from the point of view of the animal world but am struggling to find a publisher. I think we really need to understand and appreciate how well these creatures have adapted to survive.

      2. When I took the pictures I took on that snowy day, I heard many birds in this huge bush so I think they were protected as best they could be from the storm. I wish you all the luck I can give you to find a publisher. People need to become aware of how these animals struggle and how very very special they truly are!

  4. Those pink winged creatures are a strange lot, their feathers don’t keep them warm in this cold. And the sounds they make, they couldn’t warble, chirp or sing in a fit. Maybe they do need a bit of warmth and some seed to get them going 😀
    Magic as always Amy 😀

    1. Ah, but those feathers do keep them warm, Mark. Those birds have a way of fluffing their feathers to trap warm air from their bodies around them to keep them warm in cold temps. Amazing? You bet! And …. I heard quite a babble in the bushes with many many birds all excited as if they were chattering away welcoming those who just arrived from the Bahamas. Hope you have a great weekend!! 💞

    1. John, birds do trap air in between their feathers to keep warm. I find that absolutely fascinating. Hopefully that terrible weather is a thing of the past and now we can ease into Spring. Have a great weekend! 🦋

    1. Aw, thank you, Sylvia. Hopefully these birds will have seen the last of the snow and Spring will quietly and elegantly reign. Hope you are having a great weekend! 🌈

      1. She’s beautiful. I miss the birds. When you have a killer cat in your yard they don’t visit any longer. Emily thinks it’s her job to keep the nation area, neat and tidy, free from other beings.

      2. We have more birds in our backyard now because all the cats that used to hunt are no longer out there. I so enjoy watching them especially out of my kitchen window while I wash dishes. I had a few “Emily’s” in my day.

  5. Stunning visuals of this little red and orange bird. Dodging the snowflakes and still getting out and about to live your art, this is remarkable with each shot so crisp. Sometimes you just have to get out there, prove to yourself you can do it and you know what, you will be pleasantly surprised. And that is you, Amy. Hope you get some warmer weather soon. Here in Australia we just entered Autumn but Summer is still lingering. I am enjoying it while it lasts. Take care and keep playing with that camera ❤

    1. Aw, thank you so much, Mabel. No matter the weather I enjoy being outside. I know how to dress for the cold weather, so the cold weather does not bother me. Every time I have no expectations when I go somewhere with my camera, and every time Mother Nature surprises me and Gifts me to the point I feel as if I am walking and breathing in another world. I hope we get some warmer weather soon here too. I did publish a post lately showing the TINY shoots of green that are in my gardens. So LIFE is returning! YAY! You enjoy the weather and learn as I have, that every season holds magic. It’s up to us to find that magic!! Much Love to you! 🦋

      1. You do dress up well for the cold weather, Amy. All rugged up. Hopefully you can shed some layers as we head in to the middle of the year, and then you can tell us how to dress for warmer weather 😀🦋 Much love to you and your family ❤

  6. You bring such raw beauty of nature to me my friend! It is indeed your magic eye – the way you look through your lens. If I were to walk out in to nature with Mr. winter I imagine a tinge of feeling of how brutal nature is – and you bring to it how truly magnificent nature truly is!

    1. Aw, thank you, Prag. No matter what the weather is, I always find the magic. I’ve just this year learned to LOVE Winter. And when I let go my grrrrrrr regarding the snow, the amazing events that unfolded are something to be in awe over. Attitude is everything. Or so I’ve learned. Hope you are having a great weekend!! 💞

      1. Yes I understand what you mean by learning to love winter. I seem to want to keep hiding cozily. I know and can see from you what awaits me on the other side of my attitude. You are most welcome dear friend.

      1. Ditto here, Joey. I actually turned down going outside today on account of the bitter winds. Cold I can handle. Winds with single digits cold? Nope! Saturday supposedly I hear we are going to see 50’s. I’ll take it and so will my camera!! 😉

    1. So glad you enjoyed my little story, Sue. Temps here as well have been up then down. The Spring birds that are here give me hope however, no matter what the weather is doing. I’m doing the very same as you FYI. Life has flung many situations my way in the past 5 weeks that have needed to be addressed and then some. Major problems in which change and big decisions considered and carried out. Finally things are leveling out. My post today is an important one, my farewell to Winter. If you have time come on over. Much Love to you and many Blessings!!! 🌈🦋💞
