    I need to learn how to use those textures as they really show off the cardinal beautifully…

  26. onejackdaw says:

    Nice shot! I almost like the muted colors of the female better than the signal red of the male.

  27. A very handsome gal here! She posed well for you- I seem to have a much harder time…

  28. Ms. Becky says:
