Happiness is....

Friends for breakfast...

Serving guests...

Tree full of cardinals (This was one of 11 or 12)

Calm bully...

I think the little one in back was getting lessons on where to steal the good stuff!

Helen: What wonderful bird photos today. Those Blubirds are just perfect. I never saw all that detail. The ones I saw this Summer in the mountains were not under the best conditions so that makes this photo even better.

I loved them all, but the last one was absolutely adorable!

You sure had a bunch for breakfast! Nice to see the bluebirds and that bluejay shot is awesome! And the squirrel lesson is darling!

Eve said...

These are all so sweet!!

Wonderful variety there Helen. :-)

Shellmo said...

This was so perfect! That female cardinal certainly had a big crown on her head - perhaps she's the queen of all the cardinals?! And your bluebirds are always the best...

Mary said...

These are great! So summery looking and such a nice selection. I love the squirrels...really cute! I hope our rain lets up some so I have more light for photos.

June said...

You must feel like Snow White with all the little animals gathering about :-) Thanks for taking care of them...guess it's a mutually beneficial relationship since they're so darn cute!

Absolutely fantastic series of bird photos Helen. Loved every one of them. That would be lovely to meet up for lunch sometime. I am going to be away from my computer for a while but I will get in touch when I get back.

Another great series of photographs! I especially loved the Cardinal with the bad hair day. Reminded me of myself early in the morning, attitude and all.

Happiness is keeping the squirrels out of the bird feeder. Outsmarting squirrels is harder than it appears.

Oh, I love all your happiness visitors Helen!

Stacey Huston said...

That is true happiness. They all look very pleased with themselves.

Hey Helen
Looks like the little one in the back had (to see the size of him) a good teacher. The Jay has beautiful colours.
