  1. Wow Rick, if possible, you've outdone yourself. This is of an epic quality. Added to the JungleDragon classics, and the homepage of course. Posted 10 years ago
  2. This is an incredible photo, perfect timing - just great! Posted 10 years ago
  3. Rick, I'll have to agree, the contrasting redness, the dark eyes, claws extending and visible through its feathers, almost a part of its wings. Great shot and a welcome spring! Posted 10 years ago
  4. Rick, I saw that you brought out your 'Step Gently Out' book with amazing pictures in it, now for pres-sale after 17th of march . I'd like to order one. What do you prefer: order it from you directly or via a book shop? The Book Beat sells signed hardcover copies, kind of cool:) Posted 10 years ago, modified 10 years ago
  5. Rick, let me know, ok? Pondering over your preference here:) Posted 10 years ago
    1. Ludo, rick reported a problem receiving JungleDragon email a while ago, it could be that he's not "hearing" you. I think this email works now, so perhaps try again :) Posted 10 years ago
    2. Sorry Ludo, I've been having problems getting mail from JungleDragon.

      If you can't order the book locally or online, send me an email and I'll get you one directly.

      1. Thanks Rick, I'll dive into it again, I was thinking if got one from you directly you could maybe write something in it;) It would be great and my first ownership of a signed book too. My email is jungledragon@Lsak dot com. If you would be so kind as to send me a mail I'll send you my details and transfer the money. Wow;) Posted 10 years ago
  6. Great action shot again with wonderful color combination. Posted 10 years ago

The Northern Cardinal is a North American bird in the genus ''Cardinalis''; it is also known colloquially as the redbird or common cardinal. It can be found in southern Canada, through the eastern United States from Maine to Texas and south through Mexico. It is found in woodlands, gardens, shrublands, and swamps.
