Male cardinals are such a very bright red, as compared to their female counterparts. It was a snow squall when I took this shot.

Hello from the critique club

An interesting image that contributes to the challenge

It’s a funny old world isn’t it! Obviously, congratulations for your high score and HM for another lovely cardinal shot but I actually much prefer your other recent entry ‘winter squall’. I prefer the frontal pose of the other but more importantly there is some loss of detail in the intense reds here. These are minor criticisms in another excellent entry, well done Drake
