Female Northern Cardinal in a snowstorm
Photographer: Chuck Murphy
Location: Athens, GA
Story: 
Snowstorms are great opportunities to get special photos of backyard birds, so when they occur, I always make a point to get out and shoot for as long as I can, before frostbite sets in. This female Northern Cardinal was nice enough to pose for me on this tree stump as the snow fell.
