[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the second of my 3 Cardinal pictures I am planning on posting. I won't repeat the note on the Northern Cardinal that I included in my first Cardinal photo yesterday. If you missed it and want to learn a little about the lovely bird, check out yesterdays picture.

Have a good weekend and those of you in the US, don't forget to move your clocks ahead tonight. I have no idea when other countries change their clocks, if the do at all.

Hello Bob,
I like this one better than your first of this male Northern cardinal, your state bird. I like the side POV and composition and the sharpness and lighting are great. I would have tried to remove th BG noise though.
Thanks for sharing,

Hi Bob. This is Once again this is a bright colourful close up of the Cardinal. You have used the light to give a glint in the eye. Good detail and colours in the feathers . well done TFS.

hello Bob

beautifully composed photo of the Woodland's red of flash,
with fine POV and framing, i love that you keeped
a good space in front of the cardinal where he is looking,
excellent sharpness and details of its plumage,
and a catch-light at point that render the photo more beautiful,

This is quite good, although I think it could use a little more sharpening. I have not had good luck at all with these. Gary
