[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Walking through the local nature preserve yesterday morning, I heard a beautiful song and investigated with camera pointed. I've seen cardinals around the area, but rarely. So this was a treat, and it's my offering for today. Getting this close and in relatively good focus with limited zoom and without my tripod set up, well, I was pleased with the outcome. Hope you like it, too.

Good focus on the Cardinal. Nice colors and excellent exposure. Unfortunately, you barely caught the subject in the frame. I know how hard it is to get a clear view of most songbirds who always seem to perch among the branches. Nice choice of photo frame.

hello Jim
quel bel oiseau rouge flamboyant ! on dirait qu'il met le feu au ciel
note trés utile car nous ne connaissons pas ici les cardinaux

merci pour tes encouragements
