Female Cardinals are usually hard to come across and are wary of people. This one may be very young and has just discovered the joys of human provided seeds. I took these shots with a 300mm lens, as result I was far enough away not to be threatening. The lady posed and did it wonderfully. I do not believe it is good practice to feed animals in the wild, especially leaving piles of seeds around. Who knows if an animal that can or should eat them will find the seeds?
