During a heavy snow over the holiday weekend, a male northern cardinal was taking shelter on a tree branch. I managed to get a picture before he flew away, but sadly the snow was so heavy at the time, the bird looked a little fuzzy in the photo. Still, with a little help from Photoshop, a blurry bird looks much better as a colored sketch-like image. The color of the bird was not altered in any way – he was certainly as bright red as he looks in the photo.
