Cardinal Perched on a Branch

I found this cardinal perched on a branch in a tree in my back yard.  This photograph was taken with my Canon 7D Mark II camera and a Sigma 150-600 mm lens set at 325 mm.  The shutter speed was set at 1/640 second, the aperture was set to f5.6 and the ISO was set to 250.

The cardinal is one of the few birds which stays through the Canadian winter.  This cardinal has wintered well as you can see by his bright red feathers and plump round body.  This photograph was taken with my Canon 7D Mark II camera and a Sigma 150-600 mm lens set at 500 mm.  The shutter speed was set to 1/400 second, the aperture was set to f6.3 and the ISO was set to 160.
