[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Just behind my house there is a path that I like to shoot at. It's a great place to go just to get away for a while. A great number of birds call this place there home as well. Here is a Female Northern Cardinal posing for me. I think the lighting was just right but as nature has it there is always some things in the way (-:

Lovely photo of this bird. Very well captured, with good light and good DOF. Great image.

Excellent shot of this feamale cardinal - shows the characteristics of the species very clearly. Sharp, well exposed, and she stands out against the blue sky very well. As for the branch in front - as you say, nature has a way of getting involved in these images ...!!


Perfect DOF. Very good detail and composition.

Great job

Hi Tom,
Sharpness is excellent! The bird looks beautiful!
Well done!
ps Is your camera and Olympus Evolt? I'm an old OM1 and OM2 person and considered the Olympus, but now I'm leaning hard toward the Canon D20...

Bonjour Tom,
everything is good in that picture, but the bird is perfect. He looks like standing there until you clic. We recognize easily the male but but don't see too much female. Congratulations!

Hi Tom

She is a real honey! What a pose. The lighting is perfect. Have attempted a workshop. It is by no means perfect, but I enjoyed the challenge. Congrats on a lovely shot!
