[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The female seems to be keeping an eye on the male as they perch on my very unattractive squirrel baffle.I was trying to get a picture of a cardinal type I have never seen before - a male with a black head.

And that instrument converts to 450mm that can shoot long and crisp clear, well done.

Timely shot to capture Mrs and Mr Cardinal in their most informal postures, Alan.
Superb colors and a pleasant composition,
