Fine capture of this female Cardinal.
I like the wing feather symetry you acheived with this POV.
Sweet pose also with her looking over her shoulder at you.
Beautiful color and detail as always.
Merry Christmas to you also.

très belle photo, belle pose du femelle cardinal,
d'excellent détails, mais c'est là que je vais être
plus sévère dans ma critique (héhé rire),
j'aurais aimé vois un cadrage horizontal
avec plus d'espace vers le cardinal regarde

I hope you've had a lovely Christmas! This is a wonderful hind view of the female Northern Cardinal in a fine pose on a log. The sharp details of the beautiful plumage are most impressive and the colours are fantastic and look so good against the grey background.
Many thanks and regards, Ulla

How wonderful that she turned her face for you. A lovely female Cardinal and we get a chance for a good look at her back as well. Excellent colors and details and an unusual shot.

Hello mario !
This is such a beautiful bird ! I love his red beak and the touches of red in his plumage. Excellent details, nice natural colors, beautiful composition and POV, and I also like the pose of the bird, looking at you over his back. Very well done !

Cute shot of a female Northern cardinal taken from behind: I like the way she turns her head in this excellent composition. Fine low POV and superb sharpness.

La prise de vue arrière du cardinal est très réussi, il ne semble pas inquiet de la présence du photographe. On distingue bien les détails et couleurs du plumage. Une belle réussite, merci du partage.
