Nice to see a new posting from you.
Very nice photo of this Northern Cardinal in great sharpness, details and attractive eye contact. The contrasting colours against the environment are very beautiful.

great capture of this beautiful red bird with good sharpness and a nicely blurred surrounding. I especially like the wonderful colours and the splendid light.

Hi Ruby,magnificent capture of this cardinal whit a very bright red in the best exposure,great plumage details too and nice composition.Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano
I know how you feel when you have to leave a place that you have fallen in love with and don't know if you will ever return. Rosie and I used to visit Nashville at least twice a year when our oldest daughter Traci lived there.
Traci is now doing missionary work in the country of Nicaragua, so we may never get to go back to the many special places in Tennessee where we once roamed. The flip side is ...Nicaragua....Here we come!!
The neat thing about nature is that it has no boundries, whever you find yourself there are always new and exciting things to see, smell and touch.
I have been to Massachusetts and can only say you are about to find a ton of new animals, insects, birds and plants that you would never see in Tennessee.
Now about this cute little Cardinal...I love how you captured this guy with his creast standing erect like a proud national flag waving in the wind. The last photo I took of a male cardinal his was as flat as a pancake, and didn't look nearly as impressive.
Love the good eye contact and those beautiful vivid red and black colors, especially this time of the year when everything looks so dull. Hope to see some new and interesting nature shots from you in the near future.

Fabulous Cardinal capture with the head turn and sharp eye. The focus and tone are well managed in this pleasing view.
Thanks and have a nice day,

excellent image of the beautiful red bird. nice angle and sharpness. tfs.
Absolutely amazing picture of the Northern Cardinal with your compact camera, Ruby. The picture is so perfect it puts DSLRs in shade. Very precise focus and wonderful colours on the subject.
Good to see you posting again after a long break.

Très belle publication valorisant bien le sujet dans une belle lumière et sous une bonne profondeur de champ.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Wow, a great portrait of this colourful bird. Fantastic blurring in the front and a very sharp bird.
