I was out doing yard work when I noticed a pair of cardinals flying into and out of a bush on the side of my house. I sat and watched them for a few minutes, then went inside to grab the camera. When I first came out and got everything set up, I watched mommy cardinal and got a few shots of her.
(All on 1D Mark IV with 500 f/4 IS II and 1.4x III)
Then, a few minutes later, daddy cardinal returned and I got a few of him.
Finally, I was surprised when another bird joined in... Baby cardinal popped out of the top of the bush and mom and dad came down to feed him!
What a great surprise!
I also saw a hawk swooping down toward my back yard, but in order to see where he went, I would have had to scare the cardinals away, so I refrained from chasing him. Oh well, I'll get him next time.
