I agree, Whisker. They are both colourful birds. Cardinals are family oriented and the parents extremely careful with their young. The male will feed his mate when she's tired and he also feeds the young ones.
Thanks, Falcon! I like the composition of the photo, but something is happening, that making my photos grainy. I don't know if it is something to do with my camera or the fact that I've upgraded to Windows 8 and my devices are experiencing lots of incompatibility issues. Hopefully, in time, I will be able to get to the root of this, as it's annoying me ATM!
