Adult Female Northern Cardinal on a Pine Branch during a Snow Storm, Bull Run Mountain Nature Preserve, Virginia

I went out the day before "the big storm" here in Northern Virginia to photograph some feeder birds. Will light snow falling, and a borrowed 500 f/4 super-telephoto lens in hand, I was happy when this brightly colored female Northern Cardinal landed on my perch. I need to get a larger lens of my own - bird photography is so much easier with it!
