Beautiful. I thought you didn't like cardinals. They seem to like you.

Haha Archibald! No, I think they are quite beautiful. It's just that Cardinals above
anything else give me bird burn-out.
We just have so many of them, it feels like that is all I shoot.
That, and quite a few other birds have better personality-like the Mockingbird.

It was dark, dreary, cloudy and foggy. The shutter speed was slow and the ISO was high. Still, it's the only shot I've managed to get of one of these little gems.

Beautiful, just the sort of light conditions you want in one way to maintain colour saturation even though it can be a bit of a Tv/ISO struggle.
