I post images on Flickr and am quite excited that this one made it into "Explore" when I posted it. Explore is some magical algorithm that Flickr uses to figure out the 500 most interesting images posted to Flickr in a 24 hour time period. No one really understands it... but when one of my images gets that kind of recognition it really makes me feel great!
I'm just going to have to keep this new lens I guess! :-) Shot through my kitchen window using my Nikon D90 with Sigma 120-400mm lens at 400mm, ISO 800, 1/1250 sec at f/5.6. Edited in Lightroom 3 to crop and adjust exposure on the totally blown out deck railing on which Mrs. Cardinal was standing. Little else was done to this image.
