Cardinal: last picture of the year!

Well we have arrived to the last week of the year, the first year of this blog. I want to thank my subscribers  and to anyone who has read anything on this blog. I deeply appreciated it. This final picture was taken in late November, when the weather was turning really cold and nasty. The cardinal was eating small berries in an area where branches had accumulated as well as berries. I was able to get very close to the bird and this shot was the best.

Canon XTI, Sigma macro 150mm, iso800, f/4.5, 1/500sec.



  1. Wonderful shot, nice catch..

    • Thank-you for your comment.

  2. Looks like the cardinal is frozen stiff! Nice pic!

    • No, it was not frozen!
