My Newest Photographic Goal

When it comes to taking pictures, I have a new goal.

This is a photo I found on the internet when I ran a Google search for an "albino cardinal." I ran the search because I saw what looked like a white cardinal in one of my trees. I wanted to know if they really existed or if I was seeing things. Low and behold, they do exist.

I have always had a goal of getting a decent picture of a cardinal in the snow. I know I'm not the only one with that goal as I've seen it mentioned on various websites including Ray's Weather. And yes, I still have that goal. But now I have another one added to it.

I will continue watching for this elusive white cardinal, keeping my feeders full in the hopes that she (as I think it was a she) will join the more common red and brown brothers and sisters at the ever present feast. Now that I know she is out there, I will not rest until I get a photo.

Just hope she doesn't become my Moby Dick.

Boy, so do I. What worries me is we have snow heading our way. I've been wanting a red bird in the snow picture, and watch me only catch the white bird instead. She might blend too much. ;-)
