I took this photo of a female cardinal the other day. Not being much of a winter photographer, it’s my first photo of the year. The winter is fading into spring so it’s easier to get out on the trails and see what’s what. I watched the bird as it flew around with it’s mate and managed to get a clear shot when it landed in the open. I would have preferred to have more space and less tree to the right of the frame but I took the bird where I could, so I guess I can live with the tree.
