Cardinal Color. (Cardinalis cardinalis)

When you live in the temperate zone, you make do with the colors you have. Birds in the area of Nahant, MA are generally brown, tan, beige, sand, skin, or dried-grass colored. But the Cardinals are here year round, and they make good subjects—the red makes them pop against the background. Here I found one hiding from me in a patch of dried reeds.

Good lord, get me back to the tropics.
