Female Cardinal

By Our Pond

A very cold morning for us and the birds around 15 degrees F , this young lady was trying to get some of the suns warmth from the rocks by the pond.
She flew as soon as she heard the shutter on the camera.

She looks tired and weary Nestor. However, she would be flattered at how good she looks here. The rust toned color theme is the perfect augment to warm her appearance. Also, I really like the feather to rock contrast. Striking image - g
