During the long, cold Midwest winter, gray is the dominant color. So on a recent sunny day during my drive to work, I did a double take at this bright red cardinal against a blue sky. I was barely able to pullover, get out of the car, and take this shot before he flew away. (Lucky to get a zoom, no time to focus!) Once the weather warms up a bit, it won't be long until the robins, blue birds, orioles and the rest are back to join him.
