Your slideshow is so enchanting with the beautiful photos and music. As always, I enjoyed my visit.

Hope you are staying warm and your cold has disappeared. This was surely an uplifting Friday video - the final scene with the leaves and cardinal is autumn/winter colorful. Enjoyed it!

What a wonderful slide show. I enjoy your bird photos so much. I loved the one with several cardinals and a woodpecker on the feeder arms

Dawn Fine said...

the sideshow was wonderful...loved the music...that one photo of all the cardinals and the woodpecker on the pole was very cool..thanks for the show

Lisa at Greenbow said...

Another great set of photos Sherry. Thatbluejay looked like it was kicking up its heals during this shoot. The junco with its tongue showing was really good too. I loved the lively music to kick off the weekend. Have a good one.

Wendy said...

I too liked all the cardinals on the feeder pole best. But they were all nice. And the blue jay was soooo blue. Looks like you had fun with this. A real treat!

Dear Cheryl,
Thank you. I love the birds in the snow. I think all the birds are beautiful too. Each one has a certain personality. All charm me!I bet your gardens looked amazing in the ice...
I hope you are staying warm and cozy. Since all your trees are planted maybe you can take a winter break and enjoy the fire in your hearth. Hot tea and a good book will warm your bones.
Thank you for asking about my cold. I am feeling 100% better. I have been drinking grapefruit juice. It is tasty!
Enjoy putting up your Christmas decorations.
Hugs to the Grandchildren.
Love and light,

Dear Marmee,
A snow day! Always exciting when the kids are home from school because of snow.
So happy you enjoyed this slide show. I do have fun putting them together.
Have fun in the snow.

Dear Karen,
Thank you. I am so pleased you enjoy the essays and the slide shows. I never tire of the birds...
I am doing more and more Fiber Art. Maybe one of these days I will do a Fiber Art slide show! I could show felting.

Q said...

Dear Mimi,
I can hear!! Thanks for the heart just took a huge leap of joy.
Slide show Fridays are very fun for me too.

Dear Sue,
I like the last photgraph too. The colors speak to me. I like the way the sunset looked on the leaves and the Cardinal.
The first photograph, of the Tufted Titmouse, is my current favorite. I like it so very much I will see about printing and framing...My house will soon be out of wall space. I have an idea about doing a show....just an idea. LOL...I know of a perfect spot to show my work. If I do this I will let you know. It would be after the New Year.
Thank you for your support. It means the world to me.
I am feeling much better. I think the cold is gone. I have not sneezed all day!

Q said...

Dear Marnie,
So many cardinals come when there is a weather event. I could do a wide angle shot to show all the red dots! I also liked the photograph of the Cardinals on the feeding station. I do love the up close pictures the best. I to love to look into the eyes of the birds.
Thank you for enjoying the slide shows. I do have fun making them each week.

Q said...

Dear Dawn,
You are so welcome. Paul Winter's "Tomorow is My Dancing Day" comes off the cd by the same title. I do love it and the title is amazing!
Glad you enjoyed it too.

Q said...

Dear Lisa,
I love seeing the birds in action.
I just get so tickled with all of their darling little ways. Being a bird is hard work but so enjoyable to watch.

Q said...

Dear Wendy,
I did have fun taking the photographs and putting them into a show. We are to have another weather event on Sunday so maybe I will see a few different species. I am looking for Redpolls!

tina said...

You are so talented. The birds are just beautiful. I like how you catch them with the food in their mouths. A hard thing to do and to take good photos.

Q said...

Dear Tina,
Thank you. I just love the birds...
They make me laugh and I feel as if we are friends.

Mary said...


All of your photos leave me breathless but I squealed at the shot of the several cardinals and woodpecker sharing a perch. FABBO!

All of your photos are top-knotch. I can't begin to imagine where your talent will take you...


Rose said...

Sherry, I know you are going to enjoy your new camera, but I don't know how you could possibly take any better pictures! I've been gone for a week and have missed seeing all your feathered friends; the slide show was the perfect way for me to catch up. Obviously, the birds know where to stop for a rest and a meal during their journeys. Hope you are feeling better.

Q said...

Dear Mary,
Thank you. I appriciate your kind words and support. The birds lend themselves to fantastic shots don't they? The snow helped out!

Q said...

Dear Rose,
Thank you so much. I can take pictures now in amy kind of light without a flash...this helps so much!
Slide shows are great for weekly catch ups. I use them as my morning meditation all week too.
I am feeling much better! Thank you again.

Dear Wren,
Thank you. The birds do make my day joy filled even when I have the sniffles.
