Northern Cardinal

This is the same Cardinal as before. I was waiting for it to hop onto a lower branch which would give me a better look at it, instead the cardinal just stayed on there on the highest branch. After a while, it started to sing which I managed to get a shot of.

D7200, Nikkor 200-500mm | 1/1000, f/8 @ ISO 180

Objectively this photo is worse than the one before – there is a bit more noise since I had to pull up the shadows considerably and the face seems more out of focus than before (despite the same aperture). But I like that the cardinal is crowing here.
