Weekly Photo Challenge : Against the odds

Why a cardinal? The red color of the male cardinals is mesmerizing, especially against a gray and dull winter backdrop, but at the same time I am sure the brilliant red also makes these birds an easy prey for larger birds. Unlike most birds, cardinals do not migrate, and they do not have a winter plumage to blend in with the dull colors. They survive these long dull winters against the odds, don’t you think? 🙂
