I took this shot a few minutes ago through our sun-room window. A female cardinal feeds her young with crumbs from the suet feeder.

Of course, as soon as I opened a window to get a really clear shot - they were gone!

ISO 5000

Well focused.
Great well balanced contrasts.
You could call this too THE KISS OF LIFE!!!
Best regards,

Hello Alan,
I would never had guessed that this was taken through a window, because it looks so clear. We don't often see a mother feeding her young here on TN, so this is a real treat. Nicely captured and showing us a tender moment in the lives of this little family.

Hello Alan- Beautiful moment you have framed. Good POV with nice coloured Cardinal. Well managed BG too. Thanks for sharing. Regards- Srikumar

Hi Alan,
Excellent quality and interesting activity. This shot is clear enough and what a pleasure to view.

PS: I also use the Nikkor 28-300 and I think it is a very versatile lens.
