Female Cardinal (Six Photographs)

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?

  3. Spot on focus and yes I agree that feeding animals in the wild is not a good idea. Right now I’m on Fire Island, New York and the deer here are not afraid of humans. The deer look at humans and think they will be offered their next meal.
