I shot this 3 minutes after the previous picture of the blue jay and what a difference in the lighting . The cardinal was pretty much sitting in the same spot on the feeder only I brought it in closer with my telephoto lens from a focal length of 150mm that I used on the blue jay to 210mm and again used manual focus. On this image I opened up to the light more with an aperture of f/8 whereas the previous photo was stopped down to f/9. I used a little faster shutter speed of 1/ 200 sec over the 1/125 sec. on the previous shot. The ISO was the same 400. I think it also made a difference when I set my camera lens on macro for this photo which I did not do on the previous picture, It is interesting to compare in just how and what settings a picture is shot.
