Photo Of The Day: Soul Mates

FAA A male and female Northern Cardinal wait out our recent snowstorm here in Eastern North Carolina.   This pair took up in a River Birch Tree near the wetlands here.  I had spread a good number of black sunflower seeds around the tree.  Every few minutes or so, they would dart down to pick up a seed then return to their same perch in the tree.  Both were always together.  Shot with a Nikon D7100 camera using a Nikon 70-300mm f/3.5-5.6 telephoto lens.  Using this full frame lens on the small sensor D7100 yields a crop factor multiplying the effective focal length by 1.5.  Click on the photograph for a large view.

This shot and others from the same outing are available for sale at John Harding Fine Art.  Click on the link in the upper right. Thanks for the look and have a great evening.
