The make cardinal is such a beautiful bird, it's one that we don't have here in Alaska, you are fortunate for the opportunity to photograph them. Unfortunately the focus is very soft causing a loss of the details the viewer looks for in an image, I also see that you have clipped his tail feathers. I appreciate your effort!
He was giving you a quick look but wasnt going to say cheese. Nice detailed focus, showing the crisp details of his grey topped wings, black mask, red coat. I was thinking their beaks were yellow. I can see his toes and toenails. The sky is a lovely crisp blue. But he's missing his cap, whether done accidentally during shot or cropping, his head is cut too far. Aside that, it is all a pleasure to see.

What you see is what I saw!! The cap must have been pasted down. I told you he was angry!! Thanks for your time and words. Take care.
