I am not sure if this is a young male that has not yet achieved its bright red coloring (since it has the male crest prominently displayed) or a female, which are usually duller, but not, I think, with the crest. Any bird experts want to decide?

ISO 400, NEF, cropped about 50%.

Hi Alan,
An outstanding shot! This looks to be spot on with the exposure. Great colors throughout the entire tonal range. Detail is very sharp. I love the scene. I am wanting a shot like this to do my own Christmas cards next year. Great shot!

Beautiful shot, Alan. Very sharp details on this cardinal. The colors are so soft. I like him very much. TFS. : )

Looks like a female to me. They do have a crest as well, usually raised when they are alarmed or agitated I believe. An excellent capture with great detail.
