Wow that's a colourful bird. We have nothing like it here ;)
Beautiful cardinal. We have a pair nesting in the cedar trees out back. He is almost neon in his colouring isn't he?
I think the depth of his colour probably had a lot to do with the moody light during the rain shower. I was also shooting through a screened window so that usually adds something. In fact, if you look carefully, you can see a bit of the grain of the screen in the photo.
Elaine- what a beautiful photo- you captured this picture at the perfect moment. the cardinal is so colorful- a magic camera moment for you!Vicki
Such a pretty little bird!
