[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have seen this cardianl outside my kitchen window many times and he taunts me. Just as I go for my camera he flies away. Only this time I was sly. I had my trusty sidekick, Zoe grab my camera for me while I kept an eye on him. This was the best I could do through the pane of glass with available light and no tripod.

Hello Michael,
I must admit it's not bad for being taken through a window, just a little fuzzy on focus. I tried a few times to take some through our windows, but they never turned out at all.
I know how you feel, it took me two years before I got a decent shot of our state bird. The cardinals around my neighborhood are very skittish when they see you, so it took forever for me to get one in close.
Thanks for the view.
