Two beauties... And you're right on about the second. Little soft, but the pose is priceless.

I find that my bird shots are often a bit soft, too. I usually run them through a program called Focus Magic, and then also a little USM. Here's the result on this one.

Terrific shots! I like that you captured the male and female. I watch them together, they have very peculiar habits.And charming sounds.

Thanks for the kind words folks!

Bmullen, wow! Thanks for demonstrating Focus Magic. I'm going to DL the demo and try it out. To get those shots of the feeder, I have to shoot throughwindow glass (forgot to mention earlier). I'm sure it could affect metering, focus, etc.... in some way. :?

You know Jed, as lovely as these birds are, their livers make a most delictable pate.

Cardinal Liver Pate
Ingredients :
1/2 stk butter
1/2 lb Fresh mushrooms
1 lb Cardinal livers
1 tsp Garlic salt
1/3 cup Finely chopped green onion
63/1000 tsp Dill seed
3 dsh Tabasco sauce
1 tsp Paprika
1/3 cup White wine
1 stk butter
Salt to taste
Simmer for 5 minutes in 1/4 cup butter the livers, mushrooms, garlic salt, paprika and green onions. Add wine, dill weed and Tabasco sauce. Cover and cook slowly for 5-10 minutes longer. Cool. Put in blender or food processor with 1/2 cup butter and salt. Blend until smooth and well mixed. Turn into mold and refrigerate overnight.
Makes about 3 cups. Serve with crackers.
