One of my daily visitor's to our backyard. The cardinals sure are a beautiful bird and this male is very handsome indeed. For quite a few years I only saw the female around and in the last couple of weeks the pair, male & female, come by to pick at the loosened suet on the ground.

Capture this image 2016, 11-11 (Friday) in the later afternoon. Used Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 to bring out more detail and then used to make it smaller.

Sorry I haven't been around too much, but hope to catch up on commenting tonight, that's after our granddaughter is picked up this evening. I look after her 2 days a week after school, taking her to her music lessons and more.

Hope you enjoyed the view and thank you for your comments in advance.

Have a Great Day ♥ Skates

I wish I was a Glow Worm, a Glow Worm's never glum, 'cause how can you be grumpy, when the sun shines out your bum?

Pat, this is a splendid and detailed BTP (Belly Taken Photograph, ☺ )
Think however this cardinal isn't aware of being that handsome. So posing wouldn't have been its priority but begging for some treats perhaps.

Perfectly done, my friend.

Knowing how skittish they are good capture in natural settings Pat.

Great closeup Pat! I was sometime after moving down here that I realised that we also had Cardinals as well. I see them all the time now. Thanks for sharing.
