Enjoying a Moment in Siouxland, Sioux City

Sometimes when starting the day, it’s nice to take a moment and just enjoy it. This cardinal sat on the feeder in this position for a few minutes. Guessing it was just enjoying the warmth of the sunshine on a coolish winter’s day after enjoying a snack. It’s not always the big things that gives one joy.

    Jerry, I am very much appreciating and enjoying your postings and photos of the birds and other animals that you have been observing this year. I know as I get older, I find that I have more time and energy to slow down and observe nature’s gifts to us with those who are sharing this Earth with us. Thank you.

      Becky, Thank you for the kind words. Yes, it took the need to distance myself from others because of the pandemic and not being able to photograph various events or job related activities that I started focusing on the critters and just being outdoors more. With cold weather I become a bit more entrenched in inertia, but am trying to overcome that as well. I just don’t like photographing much anymore in temperatures below zero. I am enjoying learning more about the birds and such and still trying to get better at photographing them more unaware of me, but that is a learning curve. The nice thing is that it is accessible and free. Have a wonderful holiday season and Merry Christmas. jerry
