Amazing capture Bob. I'm imagining (in a Far Side kinda way) that the Cardinal DNA chain isquestioning its choice OF STARK RED plumage in winteras such a good Idea. I'm sure the ladies liked it but ...

Thanks, all. Mike, I didn't get to see that part, after about a minute of choking it, he flew off into the woods with it in it's talons.

Donna, I almost always use evaluative metering.
