Young Female Cardinal. It had just stopped raining and it was late afternoon. Horrible light, thus the high iso noisy shot. I kinda like it though.
I am a 62 year old Hobbyist from SE Texas. My interest is wildlife photography first, especially birds. I also do a few landsape and travel photographs.

I photographed this sitting in a weird angle almost hanging out my window on my desk with my zoomlens, trying to get a picture of these pretty birds while the sun was rising an early summer morning in Sweden. I sat there for two hours and snapped away, my arm aching from holding the heavy lens and sitting still for so long. That’s photographing animals for you. But it payed off I’d say. This is still one of my favorite pictures I’ve taken and it was 3 years ago, soon.
