Holy Crap! Fantastic captures here Dynamic, great job. We don't seem to get any Cardinals up this far in Northern Ontario.

Thanks all !
Cardinals have been on my 'to do list' for a long time and finally, I got a few pictures that are worth sharing. I'm glad you like them.

Awesome shots!
Cardinals are easily one of my favourite little birds, but I've never actually seen one.
But, if all goes to plan, I'll be moving to Toronto area next year... so will hopefully be able make friends with them!!!

Great shots again.

Amazing shots. Some of the best bird shots in here lately.
The first one has a very pleasing background as well.

i love the 3rd one, because of the background(cold) & bird color(hot) contrast. the second one is good also, but a little bit too "cold" for me.. not sure if you understand what i mean. maybe adding a little bit more of contrast would fix it. and the first one is good also, but with this kind of bird i prefer it to be in a winter scenery.

Thanks for the comments!
.... funny should you mention cold as it was definitely a cold day when I took the last two shots (overcast and windy). I know what you mean by saying the picture is 'cold' but I like that kind of feel in this particular shot. It gives a different setting for a bird that's here all year round.

Oooo...I miss Cardinals! (moved from NY to WA) These are beautifully detailed. Nice job! I've always thought that female cardinals look so elegant. :)
