This guy never seemed to excited about much, just kinda looked around at all the other caos.
On my trip was the first time I had seen these birds and I fell in love with them, this male with all of his reds was just beautiful.

Have a great day!

Hi Tabatha,

A very nice capture for an unknown bird (although for me),well presented with a nice POV,the colors and details are great as well a very nice oof BG,thanks


Hello Tab,

Just sitting there and very well shared subject with TN. Thanks for putting this on show.

The whole composition is very pleasing right to the aspect ratio chosen for the presentation. The branch provide good perspective with the bird perched very well exposing the harmony of colors. The sharpness is commendable against the clear background. Super shot and thanks for sharing.


Nice one - haven't seen this Cardinal here. We got only the Northern Cardinal here in Florida. Well captured! Cheers, Klaus
