Your photos have brought out the best in her. The female has a more subdued colouring than the male but she is still beautiful in her own way.

She is such a beautiful bird.
Maybe not as dashing as her male counterpart but beautiful just the same.

You know I'm really thinking that the Female Cardinal while not quite as "flashy" as the male is actually quite stunning in her own special way. I love the contrast of the red/brown.

Splendid photos Brian, I have always thought Mrs. C. is just as beautiful in her more muted colors.
