Nice shot Gary, good capture.

We have a couple flitting around down here but they haven't stayed still long enough.

I've driven myself crazy trying to shoot Cardinals in a blind they have set up at the Heard Nature Center. Even in a setup design for shooting them, it's not easy at all.

Thanks, guys. You're right, Greg. While not as antsy as a titmouse or a chickadee, they ain't an easy mark.

I finally gave up trying the bird imaging thing and now just watch for Gary's photos. It is much easier and a whole lot more pleasing. Keep'em coming Gary, they are getting better each time like this one, it is beautiful.

I've seen a cardinal maybe 3-times in the past couple years, here at the place. Those others don't live round here far as I can tell. Seems we have only sparrows, mockingbirds and some big'ol black ones so it ain't real interesting in my yard.

If ya get close, they're all interesting to varying degrees, Bob. But, thanks a bunch and I will keep 'em coming.

Ditto. She's pretty intense in this photo.
