One day, while "backyard birding", from inside my house, I was watching the birds at my feeders, when a baby cardinal appeared on my fence. Then all of a sudden a tattered looking, bright red male cardinal popped up on the fence next to the baby! I grabbed my camera and began snapping pictures through the glass! Next thing I knew the Cardy-Daddy was feeding his baby! It was exciting to see this so up-close! I was able to zoom right in on the cardinals and snapped this incredible shot of the exchange! I couldn't believe I'd captured such a sweet moment in nature between a Cardy-Daddy and Baby!
