Cardinal

Another shot from Brazos Bend, this male cardinal was hanging out on the spillway bridge against a decent background.  They are very flighty birds, go figure, and somewhat difficult to get them standing still very long to get a decent shot.  I’d like a more natural perch but he wasn’t taking direction very well.

Taken with Canon 7D and 100-400 lens on tripod with Sidekick gimbal mount.

1/160 sec @ F5.6, spot metering, + 1/3 exposure compensation, ISO 400, no flash
