Mr. Red Striking a Pose

Doesn't he look like he's giving me that "over the shoulder" look?
And my quote for today has absolutely nothing to do with the image but I thought it was quite powerful:
We all have ability. The difference is how we use it. ~ Stevie Wonder

This is lovely. I can't believe some of the wild life shots you get! You must be just like Snow White or Cinderella where little creatures pose for you.

You couldn't have gotten a better background!

Kerri,

Wonderful image and the background helps the photo. Also too saturated at the head, but these guys are very red anyway.

Another great capture.

"Astounding" is right:
Can't remember ever seeing such a good cardinal picture.

OMG HOW DID YOU GET THIS! The color is so beautiful and I really like the pattern of the blurred trees in the background. Its so rare for me to see any other birds than pigeons in NYC! Great job!

Absolutely gorgeous shot, Kerri. One of my favorite birds too. So stately.

Krista said...

He is adorable - and what a great photo, too! I think he is telling you "I will let you photograph me because I feel bad for you. Because you will never look *this* good."

;o)
