The End of a Snowy Day



Not to wear you out with bird shots but I loved the natural light play in this shot and thought it worthy of a little internet fame.   The female Northern Cardinal seemed to be  enjoying a little late afternoon quality quiet time perched on an icy River Birch tree at the end of a snowy day here.   This shot was taken as a RAW image with a D7000 and other than converting to a jpeg file in Photoshop Elements, it is unfooled around with.   The male Cardinals always seem to steal the show with their bright red winter suits particularly in a snowy scene but when the light is right, I find the sublime beauty of the female absolutely  breathtaking.   If you have a minute,  click on the photograph and have a look in large.   Thanks for the visit and have a great evening.
