I used a 480mm lens and am only 20' from the feeders. The cable is to hook my dog on so he can run around. It is connected between two trees.

Very nice shot of the official state bird of the Commonwealth of Virginia. I've been trying to get a shot of a Cardinal in my back yard but my 380MM lens isn't quite enough. I can't seem to get close enough before they fly off. Your bird is a male. The females of the species are grey with just a touch of red. Being exactly the opposite of the human race, the maleCardinal is more beautiful than the female.

The cardinal is also the state bird of Illinois. We have many around Chicagoland. I pity those who don't see them regularly as I do. I need a lense also before I'll ever get a decent shot like this one.....

Great pic! We have a pair that live in our yard or frequent it here in Fl. I have tried to get a good shot of him but nothing as good as yours! They do move a lot and when they land in heavy branches or brush it is hard to focus. You really got a nice shot!

I have 6 different feeders with sunflower seeds, thistle seeds, and a mixed seed. Keep the camera on a tripod and focused on the feeder. a bird bath helps too. after awhile they will get used to you. i sit in a rocker on the porch. and have the feeders no more than 30' away.
