For those who don't like the pose of Meditating Cardinal this traditional view of a male Northern Cardinal. Same day, just 2 hours later, maybe even the same bird.

Bonjour Eugène,

J'aime mieux celle-ci, on peut apprécier beaucoup plus de détails dans le plumage, les couleurs sont également plus naturelles et le piqué est beaucoup plus net dans cette composition. Bien fait!

Hello Eugene,
Fantastic shot of the Northern Cardinal. I love this bird, it's so colourful. You have taken it's picture with excellent sharpness, details in the plumage, POv and DOF. And the catch light in the eye makes you think that it is smiling at you.:) Thanks for the share of this beautiful picture, Eugene.
By the way liked the meditating cardinal too.

Bonsoir Eugene, superbe cette photo de cardinal, j'aime beaucoup! La luminosité est très belle et vient embellir ce beau plumage. L'arrière plan flou et bleuté ajoutent du contraste, c'est très beau. Merci!

Hi Eugene.
May be this is traditional view but I thins it is classic sample of high end photo of this amazing bird. All is superb: pictured scene and composition of the shot, simply great colour palette (domination of light and rich at the same time colour tones), brilliant sharpness and details of the twig and bird, superb smooth colourful BG. Bravo.
