I was so thrilled to see this little guy on my walk early Sunday morning.  Cardinals are such amazing creatures. A flare of red among the other fall colors had me swooning.

When I was dejected about having no subjects to shoot that morning, God provided this, and some others, instead.
I pretty much spent the morning alone, feeling the presence of the Almighty. The great force that drives all the other forces. The unknowable, but definitely detectable presence.  The spirit on the other side, and this side of the lens.

The cardinal in the leaves.

    This is beautiful! I know how hard it is to capture birds, and this came out awesome. I like how the branches sort of make a frame around it — nice composition.

      If you’ve never seen me stalk wildlife you are seriously missing out on some great entertainment. :-)
      Especially between my flip flop of religious experiences and wanting to angrily throw my old crappy telephoto lens into the river that was 3 feet away.
