Here's Looking at you
Amazing photo. I find bird photography very difficult. The focus on his eye is great and the off center composition works well.

Gee, he really wanted to come in and help you vacuum. Glad he didn't get hurt. A nice shot with Senor in a cute pose and a coy look in his eye. The tree makes an attractive background.

What a funny picture and situation Angelina! I like this pose you captured a lot in an excellent composition and details. I love those birds that I often see here as well, always with their little female friend :) I might have adjust the colors a bit as it looks a little green dominant in my monitor but I work on a laptop so... :) Update... I had a look at the WS and I think it works well... Thanks and have a good weekend,

What an opportunity, the Cardinals around here are very skittish. Its a great picture and the composition is great.

Out of all your Cardinal pictures this is my favorite one. I really like the pose you captured in the tree. he almost looks like he's getting ready to wink at you.You can almost see the smile. This has great color, focus and very good detail. Im clad to hear he's doing good after hitting the window.
This is a very good and funny capture.

How nice, this pose. The Cardinal is really interested in you. Good sharpness, DOF and composition. I like the WS of Billy.
This is an excellent pose captured with lovely light showing his colour beautifully.
AND you vacum with a camera, now that is dedication to make sure you never miss a shot.
Great detail Angie, wonderful image.

A voyeuristic Cardinal. You have developed a provincial name then. Fine image Angel and very glad to see you back taking pics. I was starting to worry and your presence here with pics keeps my spirits high. I am going through a transitional time. I must retain my higher power...

Aaaah poor little thing... he must really love you!
I'm glad he wasn't hurt!
This is another superb portrait of this gorgeous bird.
+++ The colours are vibrent and well saturated.
Great sharpness and detail.
I like the pose and POV.
--- Nothing at all :)
Well done Angy,

What a cute bird and interesting its pose. Eye-contact is simply amazing. Nice autumn scenery and likable view from window. Bravo and TFS.
I am impressed with WS despite the blurred image of this bird.

I love the look in this shot.This series of cardinal shots are wonderful!
The warm lighting is producing some amazing ,rich colours.
The focus is razor sharp and the eye detail is exceptional.
The shot is well composed and the POV and DOF are well done.
The OOF BG is lovely.

Hi again Angie,
I see you have a whole and interesting series on "Mr. Red"...
And two surprising details, 1) A male interested in household work :D... and 2) how trusting these birds can be, even to "come in for supper"...
And glad to hear the bird was fine, no injury...TFS, Marta

I'd pay any price to own one of these within my aviary; it's FORBIDDEN by Canadian law to bring them into Canada.
What a lovely, LOVELY bird.
They both,male & female, sing well.
So, you liked the Tigress ???? doing what comes naturally?
Warm & fond regards, M.
