These photographs were taken over the course of the year. Cardinals are one of several species in my area that don’t migrate, you are as likely to see them in spring as in the winter. I shot the male and the young female near the entrance to the park. There must have been a nest close by because over the the summer there were always cardinals in the area. I hope to get out more frequently with my camera this winter, the reward of doing so can almost make the minus double digit temperatures bearable!
