[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This Northern Cardinal (Cardinalis cardinalis) looks like he's saying: you can't see me...I've hidden myself behind this twig.
In fact it must be close to impossible to hide for this fellow, being a red canonball in a snowy white landscape.

Hola Jacob,
precioso cardenal, y buen disparo, excelente encuadre, y pov. saludos

Although he probably moved just a little, I think this a beautiful photograph. You were able to get a very good view on the cardinal and the timing of your shot was just right. It's not only the colour of the bird what strikes me, but more the colour contrast of the bird with his surroundings. Thumbs up for this one!

Bonjour Jacob
C'est Une merveilleuse photo que ce Joli cardinal rouge qui malheureusement ne se trouve pas dans mon environnement. Très belle composition, les couleurs et le cadrage et le BG et les détails sont tous supers bons.
Bravo et merci...JP

Hoi Jacob,
The compositie en de houding van de vogel zijn heel aantrekelijk. What ik niet zo goed begrijp is dat ondanks de vogel sherp is, er veel verticale lijnen zijn in je achtergrond. Een soort canvas textuur, Is de foto misschien gescant? Verder heel mooi hoor. :)
