I love this picture because of the full wingspan and the turned head as if the bird is looking back at the camera! Well done!
Awesome! So ephemeral, (divine, if I may say), yet so personal (because of what G. Ch. said above). Hard to describe … not sure if I am more taken with the perfection of the bird or that of the picture; rather both. Staring at it I feel clumsy and imperfect and just in awe. Thanks.
P.S. I never realized how much white the male cardinal has before I saw this picture.
Thank you so much for the kind comments. There are so many outstanding photos posted here and I really enjoy looking at all of them. Wish I had more time to devote to getting photographs myself.
