Cardinal in a Tree

photograph of a male cardinal in a treeThe cardinal is the state bird of Virginia and there are plenty around.  They can be tough to photograph because they never seem to allow people to get very close and they tend to move quite a bit.  As I was photographing a landscape I heard the easily identifiable chirp of a cardinal and noticed this male watching me from a nearby tree.  He stayed put long enough for me to take several photos before flying away.
