Of all the birds I have photographed I always find the cardinal is the hardest to capture
so that it is not blurry or the red feathers look dull the way the bird turns as the light is
on it outside..You did a beautiful job on the color of this cardinal.
I have taken hundreds of cardinals and am never satisfied with my work.

Oh, Thank you so much Sheri. Cardinals are one of our most common birds here in Florida and I enjoy photographing them but I am a novice photographer and I'm never sure how my pictures are going to turn out until I upload them to my laptop. I discard many more photos than I keep and it's just luck when I get a good shot. Thanks again for the compliment!
