Red Cardinal

Small birds are just painful to photograph. They don’t sit still. There is always a shadow or branch in the way. And…you must hold up these heavy lens for an eternity to get any chance at all.

That said, here’s a Cardinal. It was an ‘almost’ easy shot so I took it.

Even then, after seeing my wife’s from later in the day I was tempted to delete them.

  1. Aw, I love cardinals. I never thought about small birds being harder to photograph before but that totally makes sense. They really do hop around a lot. I’m glad you posted these. It’s always nice to see such a lovely little bird. 🙂

    1. Many smaller birds stay higher in the trees also. My wife will stalk these, and she is pretty good photographing them. I don’t even try any longer.

    2. That’s so cool that you and your wife both share a love for photography. 🙂 Does she share her photos in a blog here as well?

    3. Awesome! 🙂 Thanks for the links. It’s always nice to see such beautiful photographs. I look forward to seeing even more now. 😀
