Backyard cardinal

MALE NORTHERN CARDINAL, EVANSTON, ILLINOIS, DECEMBER 21, 2012

Pentax K20D
Sigma 135-400 at 250mm
1/15 sec. f8
ISO 800

It was getting dark when this specimen came to call on our backyard deck, but the tripod-mounted rig caught him sitting sufficiently still for a decent photograph even at a shutter speed so low.
