I followed a cardinal for several minutes in and out of the trees at Sheldon’s Marsh trying to get a clear photo, but he kept flying away before I could snap the shot. I’m pretty sure this is not the same one I shadowed all the way up the path, but I eventually found this one near the boardwalk out to the beach. Just as I was about to take his photo he flew away and I was a bit discouraged to have missed his best and clearest pose yet. It wasn’t until later at home that I discovered I hadn’t missed him at all and that his action pose was far greater than the stoic one!
