One new photograph, almost every day of the year

2019—Bad “Hair” Day

Shooting from the blinds in South Texas this past May was a rewarding experience. The blinds gave us a unique opportunity to see and photograph many different species of native birds that, without the cover of the blinds, we would have had only fleeting glances. Northern Cardinals were frequent visitors to the ponds near the blinds. I took many photographs of cardinals but none quite like this male Northern Cardinal whose distinctive red crest has been disrupted by a gust of wind giving him a really bad “hair” day. Nikon D500, Nikkor 500mm PF lens.
