[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The female Northern Cardinal is not nearly as brightly colored as her mate, but she is still beautiful in her own right. This pretty little lady visits our back yard occasionally, but so far hasn't given me a really good full body side pose. For now I have to settle for this frontal shot which doesn't show much wing or tail.

Northern Cardinals are the state bird of Ohio and are a pleasant sight to view and hear any time of the year. The brightly colored male really sticks out like a sore thumb on a snow covered Winters day.

Hi Ron,
I love photos with proper flash usage - and this image proves there's a reason to love them! Composition and sharpness are excellent, probably the colors seem a little washed out, but just a touch, indeed. But an aesthetic and elegant photo overall, huge congratulations!
