My mother received a few bird feeders this past Christmas and since then, there have been two cardinals that enjoy spending time at our home. I had yet to capture a decent photo of either of them until today when the male cardinal decided to take a seat on the nearby bush. Thankfully my camera was next to me with the right lens attached so I was able to snap this shot before he started jumping around. This cardinal’s feathers really pop among the darker bushes.
