I don’t know if it’s just me but the Cardinals seem bigger this year. It’s not just the males like this guy either. The females also seem to be larger than what I’m used to seeing. . Probably a steady diet of black sunflower seeds. I caught this one on a rainy, overcast day which made his red suit more vivid.
Shot with a Nikon D7000 and a Nikon 70-300mm lens. Nikon has just come out with a 28-300 but I’m told it’s not as sharp as the older version which is among the sharpest lenses I’ve ever used. Thanks for the look and have a great weekend.
