    Thumbs up Cardinals rule!

    I shot this, today ... from the car. These birds really freak when they see the camera. LOL

    I saw the color in this shot and thought ... artistic rendering might be nice for a print.

    So, I went with the "FRESCO" filter.

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    Nice capture. They are very camera shy. I have a pair coming into my feeder and I can only get a few shots of the female. The male takes off as soon as I go by the door.
