Northern Cardinal
Location: Rockville, MD
Story: 
A northern cardinal with bright red plumage was marking its territory with its song in my backyard. The female was right there keeping an eye on me, while I tried to click a few shots of her partner. She then made sure she captured my attention by getting closer to me and graciously posed for a portrait.
