 Male Cardinal

Male Cardinal

I stayed away from to much cropping so most of the ice on the limbs would be on display.
Big Red said he had his ice grips on so the pose would be right.

Never seen any bird, more amazing than this flame-coloured Cardinal, especially, than it was so beautifully shot!

Nice capture of a a beautiful bird with all the ice.

Just stunning!! And, the deep bevel with the pin-stripe is an artist's touch for sure! I'm always blown away by your deep pockets when it comes to settings for these wonderful characters. You really know and love your back yard. g

This is a beautiful photo. Cardinals in snow or ice are always my favorites. V

What can I say? This is really a capture to be proud of, Nestor. The contrast between the ice and the bright red cardinal almost creates a 3-D effect. Nothing to do but vote. :-)
