This male Northern Cardinal was busy taking a bath on my last trip to Santa Clara ranch in south Texas. Made a cool subject to photograph from the recessed blind that was almost level with the pond.
Taken with Canon 1DX and Canon 500mm F4 IS II
1/1250 sec @ F 8, ISO 1600, evaluative metering
A stunning and unique capture!

That perspective really makes it special. I like that tilted head.

Thanks Donna. It was a nice capture from a very fun trip. Hope to go back this summer.

Thanks Lyle. I’m always trying to get down low. Their blind made it easy.
