For all the brilliance of colour on a male cardinal, getting a photo where one can see the eye(s) has been a challenge for me. There, today, got one! Windy day, bitter cold, fluffy birdies.

Stunning details on this icy cold bird. Love the view even though I feel so sorry for him.

Congrats Linda on this catch! I esp like this PoV with two "bundles", one the shivering bird and two the tree in the b/g. Well composed! Tfs, J.

PS Amazing toes!

Hi Linda,
These are beautiful birds! This shot came out nice. It looks like he is looking pretty hard at you...;-) Nice composition! Thanks!

Hi Linda

Nice eye contact here. He looks all huddled up against the cold. This is a good shot, but the BG light is a little distracting. Not much you can do about that though! :-)

Hi Linda,
they quite hard to capture, but you did well here. POV, colors and details are nice. Good sharpness and well composed.

Bonjour Linda
C'est Une merveilleuse photo que ce Joli cardinal rouge qui malheureusement ne se trouve pas dans mon environnement. Très belle composition, les couleurs et le cadrage et le BG et les détails sont tous supers bons.
Bravo et merci...JP

Hi Linda,
nice capture of the Cardinal.It is a little weak on the focus but still thank you for sharing this nice shot. Bob

Hi Linda,
Nice shot of a chubby cardinal! The background is a bit bright but otherwise a great POV on a beautiful bird. TFS
