Dossy - We get cardinals out back and I've always enjoyed taking pictures of them. Once mature, they are really photogenic. The younger ones; maybe not so much. I thought you might enjoy this shot of a young male.

That's a nice shot of an incredibly beautiful bird, John. Here's a shot of our males (not as sharp as I would like it to be). The males in your area are much more intricate in detail.

Dossy - Maybe it's just my skill level taking the shots but I don't see much difference in the detail in your image and the ones I take of the males in my back yard.

Your second image looks closer to our birds, but there seems something very different in the detail of the face on your first shot. I'm not that bird savvy, but it's really interesting to me.
