When I started taking bird photos, the cardinals were strangely elusive, somehow always staying just far enough back that I couldn’t get a decent picture. Since then, I bought a ground blind (affiliate link), which allowed me to get even closer. The next thing was to get a cardinal in a snowstorm, which I had the chance to do this week.

Yesterday we had a hawk in the back yard. I grabbed my camera and 600mm catadioptric lens and snapped a couple pictures.
It started out on the lawn, then flew up into one of the trees. After watching for a while, we realized that it was eating something.
I have seen a few snakes, around, but not very often.
