Image Details:

We put out some bird feeders and bath a few weeks ago and it's taken some time to "build audience" but it has begun. We have one dog and cat so they like to "Help" but overall it's been a fun diversion from landscapes and astro stuff lately. This Northern Cardinal was quite comfortable in our Crepe Myrtle, probably 25 feet from me in this shot. Most of what I've been catching are Cardinals, Blue Jays, Finches and Mockingbirds.
