12. Red

I had breakfast with my morning visitors and loved how the light was hitting this cardinal.  This guy was yelling out to the 6 other cardinals in the tree to come over and get some food…didn’t his mom teach him it was rude to talk with a mouth full?  lol

  1. How did you get so close without scaring them off? I love the pop of color in an otherwise white environment!

  2. How beautiful! I have a pair (sometimes 2 pairs) of cardinals, but I haven’t been able to capture them. When I put food out, the other birds get their first. Really nice colors and framing.

  3. wow! Just looked at the hawk. That is a SERIOUS bird!

  4. Amazing shot. What a fun angle.

  5. How lucky you are to have this sight every morning, and t be able to capture it so beautifully!

  6. What a beautiful image of this cardinal. So crisp and the coloring is perfect.

  7. Did you use telezoom to this photo? What red and nice he is:-) Very fine photo of this bird.

  9. Beautiful shot! I’m hoping to see a few cardinals at my feeder today, and maybe I’ll get the settings right on the camera when they decide to visit.

  10. I love cardinals! This is a great shot. They are the perfect example of “red.” I was lucky enough to catch a male and female with their babies a couple of years ago.

  11. Wow – perfect light! Our cardinals don’t sit still very long – they are as hard to photograph as chickadees, IMO!

  23. What a beautiful shot! The lighting is awesome – guess it psys to get up early for more reasons than one. I’m amazed at the detail and sharpness you were able to get. Cardinals are really tough!
