Re: Cardinal

Isn't it nice to have such cool birds near our homes?  The hawk is nicely detailed and well lit - cardinals are difficult at times because they're SO red, they can overwhelm the sensor in bright light - it's actually a little better the light wasn't so harsh in yours.  Compositionally, you may want to consider moving the birds just a wee bit more off-center - it tends to add some interest and dynamic to the shot to have the birds offset to the outer thirds of the photo and pointing towards or looking into the empty area.  Not a must - just an idea!

Nice birds, both!
