Default Female Cardinal. Sometimes the lighting is right

She just hung around the same limb and posed. EXIF should be intact on these.

Having spent an hour yesterday trying feeder shots, I can appreciate all the work and patience that went into these (and the other great shots you posted today!) I especially like the expression on #5!

Actually no real work and always a very relaxed atmosphere when I shoot the birds. I do it from my front porch where I set up the feeders under a small group of Black gums. Gives a lot of branches for them to perch on. Always have either a cup of coffee or a beer at hand and a pipe to puff on as I slowly rock in my padded rocking chair stopping now and then to shoot a few. Rather therapeutic really. LOL
