|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
I named this shot the way I did because this guy acted as if he could pose for shots all day. Like he knew he was stunning to look at, :)
I thought he was pretty funny really.
Length: 7.5 inches
Large, conical bill with curved culmen
Red crest, wings, tail, face and parts of breast
Remainder of plumage gray
Reddish crest, wings and tail
Juvenile like adult female but has dark bill
Pyrrhuloxias are similar to Northern Cardinals but Pyrrhuloxias have a yellow bill with a curved culmen and are grayer, less brown.

Nice presentation.Excellent portrit.Good POV and nice details from the plumage.Light aand colors are very nice.
Nice pic and beautiful subject. The background is a little to grainy rather than a smooth blending. Nice ID tips!
Very nice pic. Catchligh in the eye. Two points I want to make though. Little overexpostion at the breast and grainy backdrop [may be due to a little overtight crop].
