This beautiful cardinal was back yesterday and very happy with the new kind of bird seed I stocked the feeders with. 😉
This was really the first Cardinal in 2 years that didn’t appear to care that I was trying to take his picture. He left the area if I made a sudden move, which I always try to avoid, but always seemed to come right back.
These are some of the first Northern Cardinal images I have made that I really like. Great color, sharp focus and good composition. There are some things I could have done better in the composition and my subject is not in his peak breeding colors yet but away from that I am pretty happy with the outcome.
