Taken May 05 in my yard in Ottawa ON. Canada …Not the sharpest but a lucky shot and the male was moving quickly while I was exposing for the female. I do still like the overall image though and thought I would post it anyway as it could make a nice card.
This time of year its very common to see the male and female Cardinals appearing to be kissing. More often than not they are on the ground or on a branch when they are doing this and there appears to be romance in the air. It is all part of the courtship ritual they go through in the Spring where/when they are constantly chasing one another and the male brings food to the female and feeds her. Thats what is happening in this image…it appears to be a small green inchworm or similar that he is feeding her. A delicassy I am sure :-)
