Best Shot Monday - cardinal


Here is the daddy cardinal that comes to our feeder. His sweetheart is usually not far behind. This was taken with my telephoto lens.

Head on over to Tracey's to see more pictures from Best Shot Monday.

What a great shot! Birds are one subject I'd like to learn to photograph next! Cardinals have to be one of my favorite birds, too!

Hello Mr Cardinal! Growing up in Missouri, I saw them all the time...not so much down here in the south tho.

Love it! Brightly colored birds always make for such great shots!

Very very very nice! I love that the bird is not the central figure here; the red really pops!

Beautiful bird! Great shot! Birds are hard to shoot because they move so fast!
