Red Cardinal

by Kimberly J Tilley

I had the pleasure to follow this male Red Cardinal bird around in the early afternoon of Monday.  I did spy a female lingering around, but she was keeping her distance.  It would of been nice if she came a little closer so I could zoom in on her. Or we could have $9,000 stashed away for a much bigger lens. 🙂 One day I hope I will have a much bigger lens, but for now the 300mm will do.

I played with the white balance channels to get the different background colors. I like number six and eight the best.
