Crisp, clear and colorful. This is a nice photo. Always had to wait until early spring or late fall to get photos of these birds. You did a great job. Good luck in the contest.

Darn I should have saved my last six star rating for this! You can even clearly see this extraordinary bird's eyes. I hope the original is large enough for a poster!! My admiration, Daphne Oberon

Excellent capture of the lovely Cardinal and very good entry for the contest. I like the patterns made by the branches and twigs in this, too, against the blue sky in the background. Very good lighting and focus showing a nice crisp image. Lovely composition. Good luck in the contest. Suzanne

I love red Cardinals and you capture this one magnificently. The blue of the sky serves the perfect back drop to show off his pretty red feathers. Great shot, it is not easy to get a clear shot on something that likes to fly away.

    Thank you very much. I shoot a lot of birds and have found that cardinals and warblers are the most skittish. In addition the cardinals seem to favor eating off the ground which makes for awkward compositions. Glad you like this one. Thanks again.
