Here are a few I took several years ago at Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada. This park is about 40 miles N. of Las Vegas.

Wow .. didn't expect such a great response to my snowflake ! Glad you all enjoyed it. I have others but you know how it is .. so many pics and not well organized

Anyway .. here's a picture of a mommy cardinal feeding her baby. We have a nesting pair that live in one of our trees. We feed them daily .. all year long. If they are hungry and we haven't gone out to feed them they peck on the patio door glass LOL

If you are not familiar with Cardinals, the female is the one with the orange beak.
