Let patience have her perfect work...James 1: 6

This would most likely break the rules of how a bird photo should be captured and it wasn't intended nor the conventional way. She suddenly turned her head and her crest got tousled in a gust of wind at the instant the shutter clicked...It was a bitterly cold day and the cardinal is puffed out twice her size... I couldn't bring myself to delete it, though not perfect, the beak is partially hidden, it is the unexpected angle that makes it different..

Thank you so much Ann Reece for the nomination on this picture...Very appreciated!!!
