Good captures.

They looked heavily cropped and soft though.

Cardinals are particularly difficult to nail. They like to hide behind dense bushes and very skittish. Well done.

HI Roy

I'm using the Sigma 170-500mm with tri-pod no cable release. BTW i've gotten some real sharp shots with it.

Nice stalking, I don't think I have any decent shots of cardinals. When I was trying my hand at moon photos I was amazed at the difference a cable release made. An IR remote should do the same, especially if you are using the K10 with the rear IR detector.
