Cardinals

Northern Cardinal, Kennebunk, Maine, USA — I had a great afternoon for photography yesterday, as the cold front came through, and with threatened frost overnight. The birds were very active at the feeders, and the late afternoon sun, coming in level from the west, was beautiful. Both male and female Cardinals came, and did their usual perch for a moment and then skulk under the feeders routine. They only stayed maybe 7 or 8 minutes and my attention was well divided between the two…a photographer’s desired dilemma…having to pick among multiple great subjects 🙂 Sony Rx10iv at 600mm equivalent. Program mode with my custom birds and wildlife modifications. Processed in Polarr and Apple Photos. The colors here are very intense, but I can testify that, in that late afternoon light, they are visually accurate.
