Male Cardinal

Not as crisp as I'd like, and I really despise wires, but this is the best cardinal I've been able to capture to date. Also it was a slow day and decided against filling with an archive shot! ;-)
Fabulous job, Rob ... his colors are gorgeous. Beautiful dof and clarity. Don't mind the wires .. all part of reality today.

Great catch. I actually like this wire here, it creates nice composition and interesting contrast in colors and textures.

Great shot. The cardinal in our yard keep evading me. Hopefully someday.

The reds are hard to capture. I have the same problem with the patches on the wing of the red winged blackbirds. Fortunately this one came out o.k. Glad you liked it. Thanks for taking the time to comment.
