[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this shot of a female Northern Cardinal while up at Sand Run Metro Park near Akron. It is always a pleasure to view the brightly colored males, but as you can see the ladies are quite beautiful as well.

The day was a little chilly with rain showers in the forecast for the late evening hours. I saw a dozen or so cardinals out and about with a few chickadees flitting throughout the underbrush.

Absolutely beautiful capture of this 'lady' Northern Cardinal, Ron.
Your nature photography is almost invariably professional; this picture in particular is an example of your professionalism.
The image is perfect in every respect. I love the composition and the colors on this female of the species.

Hello Ron

Wonderful portrait of the Lady Northern Cardinal,
fine POV and appropriate framing, great focus,
sharpness, details, and contrast, TFS


Hi Ron,
As mentioned in the previous comments your professionalism shows in this photograph.
Sorry about my Lion and Elephant photo's quality. It was just a special moment for me and knowing that TrekNature is for nature lovers, I had to post it.
Kind regards,

Hi Ron
Extremely sharp image. The bird proudly shows its beautiful plumage in an elegant pose. Neat presentation, good work.


Hi Ron,

The branches are frraming well the bird. The point of view is showing the details of the Northern Cardinal. The good luminosity is bringing out the colours. Have a nice day.


Hello Ron,
Perfect BG for this bird. Well captured this female N.Cardinal. Well exposure and light. Like POV as well as details.
Thanks for showing,
Regards and have a nice WE,
