The male Cardinal is very bright red and eye catching, but I find the color of the female much more interesting. Lots of these birds East of the Mississippi River, Not a shy bird at all, especially if you scatter sunflower seeds on the ground. :-)

This is a fantastic and outstanding photo of Mrs. C You have done a superb job on this photo. Wonderful details and so soft - it looks like a soft painting...a work of art.
WOW

Thank you Barb. A border or frame around my photos definitely improve them. Cropping and framing add to the fun.

Pam, lots of birds (and squirrels) love the sunflower seeds. Lots of Cardinals year round, but the Goldfinches (thousands of them in the winter) go through a lot of seeds.

Barbara, even though they are here year 'round, I still enjoy them every day.

I agree, the colors in her plumage are subtle and lovely.
