Οι καρδερίνες θεωρούνται πανέμορφες λόγω του υπέροχου συνδυασμού χρωμάτων του πτερώματός των. Γίνεται εύκολα αναγνωρίσιμη από το κόκκινο πρόσωπο (μάσκα) και το μαυρόασπρο κεφάλι. Έχει ολόμαυρη φτερούγα με φαρδιά κίτρινη ρίγα, ακόμα και όταν κάθεται, λευκό ουροπύγιο, και μαύρη ουρά με λευκές κηλίδες.

Hello Giorgos,
This angle gives us a good view of it's beautiful plumage, love the markings and rich colors. Would have been nice if it would have turned it's head slightly in order to give you some eye contact, but you have to take the shot when it is available. You managed the exposure quite well considering you had to deal with the white BG. I wish we had these little beauties here in Ohio, they are so pretty.

Hello Giorgos,
What a lovely picture. Well done.
