  22. Immediately my husband said...what an awesome female cardinal. This is a fabulous capture. She is so majestic perched there on the branch. We have seen a one or two here on our property, but never have we seen one like this so up close and personal. Great shot. genie

  25. What a great looking bird - if I had cardinals on my garden I dont think I'd ever tire of photographing them!

    The cool waters of the south of Australia are pretty spectacular as well!

  29. Hello there Karen girl !
    On very rare occasions we see a flash of red here (mainly husband sees them and not me ;-(
    They are so beautiful it seems impossible for a bird to be such a gorgeous colour like that .. I would be tickled RED if one would drop by my spa now ? LOL
    Joy : )
