The male is stunning Roberta. Try peanut butter on the tree limb on the side away from the camera
Thank you very much Morris. I will try the peanut butter trick
Beautiful shots Roberta, thanks for sharing

Good looking birdies Birdie. #1 is super.
Ken, thank you
Wow ....... great shots.
Thanks Jim, glad you liked them
Two beautiful images Birdie, I especially like the female on a nice looking branch against that wonderful BG.
Terrific detail in Mr. C
Oh how I wish we had these gorgeous birds in SoCal.
Thanks so much Kirk !
Nice Roberta!! Hair combed back on both them, that's something I don't see much in Cardinal images -Mike
Thanks Mike , appreciate you looking in and commenting.
Being from Arizona , I love cardinals
Glady you like them, thanks so much!
Great shots Birdie, what nice backyard visitors
Thanks Tim ! Not exotic , but colorful
Whoa, nice pictures Birdie The first one knocked me back in the chair, great composition and clarity. Being a beginner, I'm starting to appreciate that focusing on the eyes applies even to these small birds Thank you for sharing,
John, thank you ! All the wise men on this board told me early on , get the eye in focus . If the eye is in focus you can get away with all the bird not being in focus some of the time
Excellent shots Birdie! I was checking the exif on the first one, to see how you create these wonderful photographs and to see what I need to do differently, and I noticed you used spot metering. Do you often use spot metering for birds, or do you just use it on perched birds?
Thank you very much. I use spot metering most of the time. It seems that more often than not I am shooting in not ideal light, either too much or too little light. I am learning and finding that if I can meter off the subject, I am more apt to have it exposed properly. I try and deal with the background in post.
