Female Cardinals (Three Photographs)

Lovely birds but hard to shoot, as they are very skittish. Slight movement sends them away fast. Female Cardinals are one of the few birds I will go out of my way to shoot because inevitably they make marvelous subjects. I believe the bird here is held captive by indecision. Someone had laid down seeds on the stump and the bird could flee or eat. I chose to snap a few shots and get out of the way. Over the course of a summer some birds become familiar with humans and are less skittish, but not these birds.
