Best of the Cardinal images; love the softness; looks like he is sitting on a nest. (voted earlier)

Perfect photo. I really like the position of the bird, and how sharp it is compared to the rest. It's on my top 3

Very nice focus and detail on the cardinal -- so lovely of them to hang around for winter pics as they are so showy against the often neutral backgrounds of that season. I find the two right to left golden diagonals distracting but I also know you have little to no control over stuff in the way of a capture like this. Good image imo.

Wow, déjà vu.. there's another entry very similar to this one. Nice composition, the reds aren't oversaturated like many of the other entries and I like the diagonal lines. Well done.

I love the wee bits of pine needle sneaking in. Wonderful natural framing.

As this is the 8th Cardinal so far, I give it a 8! Actually, it is a beautiful capture, and well deserved score.
