That's right, I'm still using older photos...nuff said.

I love how cute the birds look when they're all puffed up to keep warm. So adorable! I have a Blue Jay, a female Sparrow and a male Cardinal, puffing their bodies and looking so freaking sweet!

"Do I look like I'm in the mood to have my photo taken right now!"

"Oh crap, can she see me? She's looking right at me! Just stay calm and don't move, she'll think I'm a tree!" 

"I know I buried that nut around here somewhere! If I can just, sniff sniff, catch, sniff sniff, a whiff!"

My macro today was actually taken in November when we had our first frost. I had more macros than I could share at the time, so I'm using some reserves. lol

That's it for today. Thank you for stopping in and for all the amazing comments. If you have any questions or interesting tidbits about today's wildlife, please let me know.


  1. A very pretty creation as always Pamellia. Apols I'm not able to get here as often as I would like but it's lovely having a catch up when I can.

  2. Hi dear Pamellia...such a gorgoeus creation with those adorable papers. You really do showcase them perfectly with all you fab flowers and textures.Your wildlife photos are always a delight to see and as we see so little snow here I love your snowy ones. Mind you there are forecasting that we might get some really cold weather here again at Easter...yikes I hoped that spring would be firmly in place. Take care my friend and it's always lovely to see your posts pop up. Hugs xxx

  3. The card is so beautiful and I really thought the bears were plaster models they look so 3D--amazing use of everything as always.

    More winter wonders in your photographs. Pleased to see the frosty macro today it is fantastic.

    Love Chrissie xx

  10. Lovely card, P! Looks like it belongs in a child's room, framed and adorning the area above their bed, so they won't have any bad dreams. It's a beautiful creation! Your critter photos are darling and AMAZING, as always. I especially am entranced by your macro of the curled leaf, it's delicate veins so gorgeously sturdy! How can something be so fragile and delicate, and yet strong and life-sustaining?

    Wishing you a fantastic week! hugs, de

  22. Always love it when you do videos Pamellia, you are so clever and your card is stunning! Your photos, old or new are always amazing!!

  23. Another stunner with the teddy bears (thanks for including the video linking). Love the gorgeous layers, ribbons and I really like the sepia & neutral tones with this motif. It looks so vintage. So enjoyed seeing the icy piccies, and of course I'll have say the fluffy red guy is my fave. We had some like that this winter, but the one shot I was able to get, was nothing to accurate as yours. TFS

  30. This is a very beautiful card! It has a vintage look as well.

  31. So so so so sooooooooooooo PRECIOUS and DAINTY and SWEET. I love the glimpse of the purple hearts - just enough - poking thru. The lace and ribbon are perfectly place - well - everything is. It's just an heirloom piece of beauty for anyone receiving it.

    The feathers are soooo soft looking when the birds puff up - wow. What amazing pictures of their fluffiness Pamellia.

    And if I were as cold as that little darling looks - I wouldn't want to stand and have my photo taken either... but what a FAB shot.

    My favorite is the micro. What LUSCIOUS texture... truly a marvelous capture. Xj.

  32. Oh my goodness Pamellia!

    Your photos are Stunning too.

  35. Beautiful card and I like your videos.

  36. Thank you, thank you. thank you for the fabulous video, I have really missed watching you in action. I honestly do not think one can truely appreciate all of the detail without seeing your cards come together. This card is stunning, I love all of the layers and the amount of texture you include - and between the two of us, there is no way I could ever use these amazing Pion papers if they belonged to me, they are so adorable.

    Gorgeous snowy shots, I too love all of the puffed up birds - they look as if they are about to explode. It is also wonerful to see all of your furry friends out in the snow and enjoying your treats.
