Portrait - Juvenile female Northern Cardinal - Glenola North Carolina

This young beauty still has most of the black on her bill and all of her coloring is not in yet. She looked over at me like - Is this pose okay !! I have a couple of a juvenile male I will post later this week. This was taken late one evening and she was sitting on the wire that holds the grapevine limbs off of the ground. I had to move to my left knowing that she would might fly before I could get a shot.
