Little Lady Cardinal  by Bonnie T.  Barry



This little female cardinal was puffed up against the cold and the uncustomary snow that south Louisiana experienced on this 12th day of February, 2010. It’s been quite a week for our state. Our New Orleans Saints won the Super Bowl on Sunday, and much of Louisiana had snowy weather on Friday, not something we see very often in this temperate zone.

    WHAT A STUNNINGLY BRILLIANT SHOT!! I’ve come to expect a high standard from you my friend as you are constantly and consistently presenting us with sheer feather-friends genius shots, but this one is so incredible, it has left me struggling to find the words for this comment. I adore the detail, the touched of red and contrast between the warmth and the cold, the green and colours and the bleak wintery background. DOF impeccable as always!! How do you do it?!?…..xxxxxxOOOOOOxxxxxxx

    :D : )))))))))))))))

    Oh and I meant to say congratulations on your team winning the Super Bowl!! I think it was a rather just and highly popular win around the country too!!
    By the way, I’m used to seeing bright red Cardinals in Va. Is this a different kind..are they different in various parts of the country?

    Stunning shot, fantastic detail and the frosty blue background couldn’t be more perfect in contrast her gorgeous red colours :) I just read a book by fannie flagg (friend green tomatoes at the whistle stop cafe) about a red cardinal, it was kinda sweet. Congrats on the superbowl, even watched here in nz!

    She’s gorgeous. I think the birdies know if they visit your garden, they will be immortalised on RB, and rightly so.

    She does look a little chilly, Bonnie, but sooooo pretty! Enjoy the snow – get out and grab some great shots (as always!) ;o)
