Female Northern Cardinal
I love his crest. Beautiful.
Pat, what a sweet, beautiful cardinal! Beautiful capture, and great texturing.
fantastic capture! colors are great 🙂
We do not have cardinals out west and usally all the blog posts I see are of the brilliant males. Never get to see females much so thank you for showing this one. I think she is just as pretty in her own way.
Such a charming lady with the red on her wings and tail and the colours around her beak, not to mention the cute crest. A beautiful shot indeed.
Another great photograph – you do have some beauties! And the texture here makes a perfect background with the soft fall colors.
Oh my, a little beauty is right. Margie
Hands down, The female cardinal is my favorite of the winter birds. I love how the pairs never feed at once, but one or the other will stand watch from a near by limb. Excellent rendering of this wonderful bird!
this is gorgeous, pat!
I love the light in this shot. It shows off the subtle shadings in the plumage. I generally find the female is much more interesting than the male.
She’s lovely! Beautiful portrait!
it´s a beauty alright. And you did a good job with the texture too.
A beautiful capture of a lovely little bird…thanks for sharing
Beautiful capture!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.
Beautiful photo, Pat! Nice job!
Pat, you continue to amaze me with your spectacular photos — the clarity, lighting, composition, coloring — just everything (not to mention your perfect little subject!!) 🙂
she is beautiful, sporting her mohawk!!
Absolutely gorgeous!!! Really, I love this photo, the colors, composition and edit are all spot on.
I love this shot and think your editing adds so much to it! I think the female cardinals are every bit as beautiful as their male counterparts are.
A gorgeous shot of the beautiful female Cardinal. I have always enjoyed their subtle beauty over the bright red of the male of the species.
Thank you for your visit in my blog.
So many lovely photos, I really love all of them ! !
She is so beautiful and love how you have processed the photo!
I love the way the texture/background mimics the colors of her feathers. Great job!!
I agree, she is lovely.
What is World Bird Wednesday?? Hmm off to so some research
wow! this female is just as beautiful as the males are! the texture and background really add to the beauty of the photo : )
She is so beautiful.
Have a nice weekend.
i wish we had these beautiful birds over here… and i also think the females are underestimated compared with the beautiful red males! wonderful shot!
I think I left my comment on the kitten post but it doesn’t make any difference. I like them all. I particularly like this cardinal. She’s so pretty.
oh my another fabulous cardinal; haven’t seen this one before; they’re beautiful birds; lovely photograph
