    I thought this was good (my #3) but the voters say it was even better! Congratulations on what I thought were two really fine entries!

    This is just a wonderful sharp and colorful shot with the bird placed just right. My first choice. Glad to see it did well! Congratulations.

    Beautiful photo and pose. I like everything here sans the fringing on the tail. Perhaps backing off a bit from max zoom would have helped.

    Excellent shot. Wish the bird was brighter but the detail and composition is spot on.

    You have to be quick to catch these fellows. Nice shot!

    Great feather detail! I am envious because we don't see many cardinals where I live. In my top picks! Good Luck!

    A very nice shot. I would like to see the bird a little brighter though. Even if you had to blow the background a little, that would be ok - or if you could select the bird independant of the back and just bring up the levels on it; either way.

    I'd add a glint of light in the eye (just a spot) but otherwise, this is a lesson on how to take a fine bird photograph. Really quite nice! Technically superior with fine detail, posing, and sharpness (and you've got a purposeful rear view - nice plumage - and managed to keep two feet in the frame.)

    a very good image of the bird with a catchlight in the eye making it alive. the pose shows off all the attributes of the bird.

    wow. this is just great. very sharp at that focal length. perfect complimenting background. top of my list right away.
(well.... i haven't looked close at them all yet, but think this will stay up there)
