The cardinals were out in full force yesterday at Sand Run Metro Park. I spotted about a dozen or so near the entrance to the many miles of walking trails provided to nature enthusiast.

Northern Cardinals are very vocal this time of the year as they choose mates for the upcoming breeding season. I hear them every morning as they sit high in the tree tops singing for all the world to hear.

Hi, Ron. A lovely portrait of this northern cardinal in a diagonal composition with excellent clarity and depth of field. This is one of the best photograph of the Cardinal that I have seen so far. Thanks for sharing.

Excellent picture, Ron. Impressive sharpness and warm colors, as well as a nice pose of the bird.


OUTSTANDING image quality with vibrant color.

Hello Ron,
This colorful bird has the right name....The colors are amazing. As usual the quality of the photo is at the highest standards. the details of the feathers are superb. Lovely photo taken from a very good POV.

Very attractive bird, Ron. I adore its bright red color.
The shot is very well composed with the bird's head tilted so slightly it makes the eye fully visible with a catch-light in it.
Very sharp and crisp picture that warms my heart.

Hello Ron,
Beautiful photograph of this Cardinal. Well BG with splendid light and color. Details are well visible too.
Thanks for sharing,
