He came back today. And this time, I had a camera. I took pictures and it took me hours to process them. All afternoon, actually. I have to spend some time talking about the problems of getting the color in the feathers to display properly when the pictures were taken in bright sunlight. Sunshine changes the color of feathers (and flower petals) and a lot of processing is trying to get that red rose to come out the color red you saw and not what it looked like with full summer sun on it. That is for another post. Meanwhile, here’s my orange Cardinal.
I’ve got more pictures, but I’m going to be a tease about it and play them bit by bit. I really DO have an orange cardinal. It’s very cool.
