[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is my last Cardinal picture for a while. After I saw what I had taken I thought of Asbed the CeltickRanger. If you have not seen his work, Asben posts a number of small birds in flight. My Cardinal is just launching him self toward the feeder and I can see Asbed ready to get his picture in just a split second after my picture was taken.

To learn about the Cardinal, see my post of two days ago.

hello Bob

excellent photography of the take-off of the Red Cardinal,
i love the POV that it not completaly by side and we can
see of his face and chest, excellent focus on the bird
with excellent sharpness and details, fine framing
with leaving the space on the image for his flight, TFS
