[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Northern Cardinal

This is a cardinal I shot at the same ranch in south Texas. I had a fantastic time shooting there for that week and gathered tons of images of birds.

This little guy was watching all the other bird from a tree and just the expression he gave, like he was looking in on the activity.

I cropped this image tight because it showed more interest.
Thanks for stopping by and I'll be showing more images from my trip, soon.

Hi tabatha. This is a fine close up of the Cardinal. you have sharp focusing and rich colours. very good light in the eye. a good POV/DOF. well done TFS.

That is a great close-up. Amazing detail in his eye and feathers. Perfect BG. Great job. Can't wait to see your other photos from your trip.

Hi Tabatha,
A great protrait of this n. cardinal!
I like the close approach, pose and expression caught.
Just wondering if with the original file it have could increased the sharpeness just a little.
Well done and thanks for share it.
My best regards,
