Male Cardinal

 

This male cardinal is a year round habitant of our neighborhood and a frequent visitor to our bird feeders.  On one snowy day, he sat in a pine tree just outside my window.  I quickly set up my camera with a telephoto lens.  The window had a fine layer of hoar frost, my fist was just the perfect size to melt a small window through the frost.  The telephoto lens allowed the background to be blurred and the hoar frost caste a softness to rest of the image.

This image has become a popular note card especially around the Christmas season.
