This Cardinal has such extraordinary colors that I have not seen before.

Great capture, Brian.

She's beautiful, though she does seem a little chilled. Bless her heart. Great shot of this pretty little female cardinal!

Gorgeous capture, Brian. The detail is amazing: its little talons wrapped around the branch, the dew drops on its chest, the clarity of the eye -- wow. What lens were you using?

What a big beak for such a small bird. Love the water drops and looks like there are some leaf buds there too. Hmmmm, this month is almost gone already ... is Pux Phil going to tell us we are going to have an early spring.

This is so beautiful. I find birds to be like impressionistic paintings. Such a wonderful blend of flying color from a distance, and so much integrated detail close up. This is wonderful!
