Hi Everyone, I saw this Cardinal, perched on the ground, for a bit. I figured it was asking to have its picture taken so I ran inside and grabbed my camera. As luck would have it, by the time I got back outside it was gone. Not to be discouraged I hung out and waited, and found it in a tree. I didn't have my tripod out and it was sitting on a branch in some pretty deep shadows. There was no way I was going to get the shot without it being "soft". I opted to try it anyways, as I panned up looking for the little critter I realized it was gone from the tree branch as well. Deciding my cardinal friend was a bit camera shy after all, I figured it was time to pack it in. Low and behold, that little guy was back on the ground where I first saw "him" Yes in the exact same spot! So I fired off a few shots before it decided it was going to get shy again and take off.
Until next time,
