Fresh Pond Cardinal
A sunny spring morning in Fresh Pond, Cambridge MA, and all the birds were singing. This cardinal refused to stay still long enough for me to get in to position where I could snap a better portrait of it so this profile shot will have to suffice. I like the brilliance of the cardinals red feathers against the bright blue sky.
Taken with the Canon PowerShot SX230HS in landscape mode with it's x14 zoom fully extended, cropped and levels adjusted in post processing.
