A lovely lady Cardinal, Gene. Curious about the white in the background — I know it is not snow, and probably not clouds, so that leaves flower blossoms? A good-looking image with great image quality! :D

Ron, Definitely not snow--it was a mixture of blue sky and clouds.

Thanks, Gene. I'm pleased to see you can retain that much definition in the clouds at that aperture.

Sweet pose and surrounds- a lovely portrait of Ms Cardinal! Do you know what the plant is that she is sitting on? Creates a nice environment for her.

What a nice shot Gene! I love the perch, framing and the blue BG....all blend nicely together.
