We got some more snow yesterday, not much, but enough to make the Cardinals stand out from the mostly white scenery.

Meanwhile a male Cardinal was dining at the bird feeder, unaware of what was going to happen to him.

As I pressed the shutter a few seconds later, another male Cardinal streaked in, forcefully chasing him away.
