The way our bird seed has been going down, I thought all the cardinals in the world were at my house! You might as well send that one down here to feast with the rest! (Or I could send all mine up there!)

She is indeed sitting pretty, Gord! Just posing for you patiently. Very beautiful capture with wonderful feather detail and clarity and I love the catchlight in her eye. Gorgeous color composition, too, with the red background and perfect DOF. Wonderful work, as always!
