This image is also available at Lois Bryan at fine art america in an exciting variety of framing and matting options.
This adorable female cardinal perched outside my kitchen French doors (in Maryland) during The Big Blizzard of ’09 yesterday, December 19, 2009, clearly a bit kerflustered (thanks again Renee Dawson for that perfect word!) by all the snow and wind. But just to her side is a huge bird feeder, filled to the brim with tasty goodies for her and her family.
Focal distance 300mm.
Image taken with the Nikon D300 and the 70-300mm vr Nikon lens. Shutter 1/20, aperture f/9, exp -.33, iso 1000. Spot metering. Post processing included work in levels and curves. Nothing fancy … no textures.
Also available as a Christmas card:
