Default Backyard cardinal

I don't usually shoot small birds at my feeder, because it is outside a screened lanai, and the screen messes up the contrast and sharpness, so I don't bother. Earlier this week, I was working in the garden, and a female cardinal landed on the feeder pole, and didn't fly away when she saw me. I went inside and came back with my camera, and she was still there. So I took a few snaps with my E-3 and 50-200mm. Not the quality of Gary's work, but I was pleased for a few quick handheld snapshots.

REALLY good captures, Steve, and don't ya just love the bokeh the 50-200mm produces?

....sassy looking little lady cardinal and better images than any I've made of any bird smaller than a duck.
