Hi Bill...

Beautiful work on this gorgeous Cardinal and its distinctive perch. Great camera work and processing.

I was just about to post a Northern Cardinal of my own, but after seeing this one, I think I'll forgo it for now. :-)

Hi Phil...

Well, thankfully, I don't have any Reddish Egret photographs, so maybe I can feel safe posting this Gila Woodpecker just hangin' in there.

Lovely patina on that old pump, and it goes so well with the cardinal's colors.

Thanks, Tom. Your post gave me a chuckle knowing how good your work is.

Thank you, Archibald. Color coordination was totally unplanned. The only bird to land there that sit.

That works very well, as does a simple dive under water.;-)a Great shot, Shalu.

The old rusty pump makes a great perch. Very nice, Bill.

Great capture, Shalu. The foot almost looks out of place on the bird. Cute shot of the helmsman and the rower.  :p
