I have seen this behavior before. They think that there is a rival in the mirror; this is such a funny comportment. I like the timing of this capture with this nice movement. I would have composed it a little less centered but it is still a nice picture and good moment caught :) Thanks,

Great pose and a very nice picture!
My mother-in-law has a cardinal that constantly attacks the windows at her house. I wonder what it is with these colorful guys?
Ah, I found the answer in your note: * The male cardinal fiercely defends its breeding territory from other males. When a male sees its reflection in glass surfaces, it frequently will spend hours fighting the imaginary intruder.
Maybe that's where the saying: "bird brained" came from...;-)

This is a winner ladies and gentleman and you may now pick any prize on the bottom row...roughly borrowed from Steve Martins "The Jerk"...
The Cardinal, as Mario from Quebec will tell you, is a favorite of mine. And so are you and Happy Birthday to your husband Barry..and congratulations on your anniversary tomorrow.

That's great, I've heard of our Great Tits behaving in the same way. Nice capture in beautiful light and the open wing looks lovely. I could think of a better background, but there we are, it's a nice shot anyway showing the weird behaviour of a bird.
TFS and all the best, Ulla

Congratulations on this bloooooomin' good shot!!!
The action and pose is outstanding.
+++ Perfect timing to capture this brightly coloured bird with its wings out, ready to take off.
Vivid colours and perfect lighting that allowed you a high shutter speed to capture this bird with excellent sharpness and detail.
The DOF is very good aswell.
Well composed and a good POV. Great notes.
--- Nothing at all :)
Well done on this original and excellent shot!

Your comment gave me a good laugh.
I am glad you may start doing some birds.
Especially if they are as good of action shots like this.
As much as a mirror is not always the best of perches, your wing action and the lighting are fantastic.
This sure is a pretty bird.
Hope it will land in some trees for you.
Enjoy your week.

Wonderful shot and you have freezed a splendid moment. Great lighting, exposure, sharpness and colours. I like the motion blur on the wings and their position - shows a fine perspective view. Excellent POV and very nicely composed. Kudos.

I like this pose, it is wonderful!
Macro work is well done, with great details in the bird and a fine blurry background to enhance the subject...

Hello my 'crazy' friend, Angelina,
Sorry I've been away so long. I had "good" reasons with a CAPITAL "S". REASONS.
Anyway, this is another OUTSTANDING image.
Loved your notes.
I 'owned' one of these when I lived in Ontario. Great singer.
Warm and friendly regards,
