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. :-)

Nice, Bob. Judging from their bill color, these 3 are all males.

Here is how you get your baby off your back: like a dump truck!

Two gorgeous images there.
Love them both for their behavioural patterns and the photography.
