One Friendly Cardinal (Four Photographs)

This cardinal was very friendly and flew in very close and stayed when I approached. With a long lens this can be problematic and you need to back up to get the shots. I am not sure how this bird’s behavior came about, possibly due to being fed by people. In processing I was surprised by a noticeable increase in saturation and brightness that affected only the reds. On going back though the process I noticed that the Intensify CK preset I was working with was adding saturation (normally nominal, but in this case far too much). This forced me to re-work the photos to get back the realistic colors.
