Female cardinal... by marlboromaam

Female cardinal...

It's awfully grainy - not too good either, but the first cardinal I've seen in a while. I play the screeching hawk sound on my phone now and the bully mockingbird just looks at me like I'm stupid. Going to have to resort to tougher measures. Maybe it's time to get out the SUPER SOAKER! Hey, it works for the squirrels and no real harm done. They just don't like to get wet. LOL!
I found when the cardinals show up, they will come back. So nice to see them, great capture.

@dutchothotmailcom Thank you, Esther! I want all the birds to come back and this bully bird to leave them alone.

I love the focus and the light. Your cardinal friend looks very ethereal.

@sherimiya Thank you, Sheri!

@ludwigsdiana LOL! Thank you, Diana!

@wakelys Maybe 20 feet if no wind. LOL! Had no trouble reaching the squirrels near the feeders from the deck. I'll have to see what it will do with the roof where the bully hangs out. If it won't reach that high, I'll just have to get the hose and nozzle. I know it will reach up there. =)
