Easter Cardinal

Northern Cardinal: Kennebunk, Maine, USA — We don’t have Cardinals nesting in our yard. The nearest pair is a block away. I hear them singing this time of year, and most of the summer, whenever I am in my blind, and occasionally, they come to see what seed is being spilled under our feeders. I had only been in the blind a few moments yesterday, and was still getting set up, when both male and female came by…not close…but passing through the pines on their way somewhere else. I managed a few shots of the male. Sony Rx10iv at 600mm equivalent. Program mode with my custom birds and wildlife modifications. Processed in Polarr and Apple Photos. ISO 200 @ f4 @ 1/500th. Better than a chocolate egg for Easter any time!
