Sorry guys but another shot of the male cardinal.
I hope you never tire of seeing them because I think they are beautiful little birds.

Have a great weekend!

No worries! I don't think a lot of us will tire of shots like these. These are remarkable birds and it is always a pleasure to photograph them. Good job.

Hi Tabatha,

Not to worry - I know I can't get enough of them. He is lovely and in a nice pose. Good colors and details against a lovely background.


Well since I seem to have lost Angelina in S Texas I guess you could do as well:-) I always enjoy seeing these image from the area..Angle is going through a photographers block righ5 now...I wonder..from you is the weather harsh? cold? I wonder at what is wrong....ah well at least your photos how hope that all is still there and red!!!

Hi Tabatha,
I personally never tire of seeing such an attractive bird such as this cardinal.Here where I live there has only ever been one or two ever reported seen.I like the point of view you offer in this shot and the colour he has.The catch light in the eye is a nice detail as well.These birds are a joy to see and as pretty as the males are I really like the females best as they are more nuanced with more colour variation and subtle details.Thank you Tabatha for this wonderful capture,he sure is a looker! I have done a workshop for another take on your lovely little fellow and I hope that you enjoy my effort. Bob
