This dude stopped by tonight! Now I am not a bird photographer. I just don’t have the patience to wait for them to get done being scared of me. I get bored and go do something else.
But this red guy was just standing there in the grass! I had time to go get my camera
and he was still there!
So I got a little closer.
and a little closer,
and a little closer. He never moved, just turned his head and looked.
This the closest I’ll probably ever get to a cardinal or any other bird.
When I was done photographing him he flew away.
He probably only wanted a selfie.
