Counting and clicking

It will be difficult for me to decide which photo is my favorite.
I have waited for months for Mocking Bird to perch on the bamboo tepee!
The sparrows are so sweet and add much activity to the gardens.
Last year a female Cardinal took best of show!
Time for me to have a snack.
All the counting and clicking has made me hungry.

Dearest Q~

I love the cardinal here. I went back and looked at some photos for the past month or two, and will submit my picks for favorites. I don't know if you have to have it from a certain day or not, but here goes, I'll give the date and the photo id. I didn't even think about looking back at summer, I knew I'd loose my mind before dawn.

January 28 - Mixing Motif 136

It is an extraordinary picture, the way it is framed (by your windowpane, the color, clarity, the composition is so interesting~ I'd say that it is an award winning photograph (you have many in my opinion).

Hope it is okay to post so many pictures. I believe in You!

Needless to say, I love your work my dear heart.

Love you,

My Dear Sprite,
Thank you so very much for your time and effort in helping me choose a photo to submit!
Wow, you worked hard! I take many photos every day and I have a full library. Thank you for believing in me and my photography.
You chose many of my favorites as well.
I had thought I would keep my picks just from the days of bird count.
One of these days I will go through the entire library and pick my favorites from each month. Some of the hummingbirds and butterflies from last summer are part of my all time favorites. I had planned on giving myself a year of learning the camera before publishing. I have printed and framed many and have made cards and such. My husband does enjoy his slide show every evening.
Thank you again for your support and kind words.
You are a treasure.
