Great shot....this is a shot that I want to capture someday! We don't have many here...and certainly no snow.

Gorgeous red...brilliant composition, the gray background really sets off the cardinal's color!

Gorgeous shot...I agree with the comment above: the greyness of the background makes the red bird "pop"...really striking composition.

Hi Stephen, Thanks for looking at my photo. It was last fall that that was taken. The tree is a Hawthorne in my front yard and the cardinals, squirrels and now robins are enjoying those berries! Thought the berries made the picture extra special. Thanks!

It's like a view I have when looking out from my window. A red-leaf three with grey birds :).

well its a very common bird in the usa. it's a cardinal. the males are brilliant red like this and the females are a browny red ... my preference is the female. i find it's color shading to be a more classy look. in many cases i actually find the females more attractive. like red winged black birds of yeah and my wife.
