not sure this is a cardinal...more like a red bird...no "cap or top"...will have to google now...

Good detail--it looks like it was a tough one to crop; too bad about that branch in front.

Could have been higher if you didn't go crazy on the reds. They are oversaturated on my monitor (calibrated). Still, I love the capture and thank goodness you kept that branch from interfering with the bird. 7

Great red color. You might consider cloning out the little twig that is right in front of the bird. (no vote, just making a few comments)

Nice capture and nice detail in the bird. I think some color adjustment would improve the image, since there seems to be just a bit of a yellow overcast.

Nice capture. It's a bonus that you have him looking right at you.

Great color tones. Nice crisp definition on the bird.

I love cardinals. nice capture

Very nice.. I would have liked this much better if you had cloned out that single twig that distracts from the bird.. Isn't it amazing how they can always find a single twig to hide behind?
