The temperature was well below freezing. There was enough snow on the ground that my waterproof hiking boots were on the verge of failing. I was bundled up in layers and struggling to keep myself warm. The trees were barren and even the lake was solid ice.

Then I saw these little Cardinals hopping around gleefully in their birthday suits.

They were so small and fragile. I could squish them with my hands without any effort.  Yet they were the ones braving the weather as if it was just another sunny spring morning while I was quivering despite the layers upon layers of fibers.

It makes me marvel at nature's engineering prowess. How can something so delicate be so resilient? Do they have the best down jackets? It is a spiritual moment when you notice just how incredibly complex these creatures are. Human intelligence has led to many fantastic creations but nothing comes even close to these flittering packages of pure scientific genius. Such thoughts always reinforce my belief in a higher power.

This photograph made it to the top 25 in the birds category of the 2021 Nature photographer of the year competition. It is available in a limited edition of 50.


Lumachrome HD acrylic prints offer an unparalleled level of visual
quality and clarity. The printing process and acrylic face-mounting
technique create an effect that is similar to looking through a
high-quality glass window, with images that seem to jump off the surface and appear almost three-dimensional. For more details please read this comparison of different types of prints.

ChromaLuxe Aluminum prints are a stunning and unique way to display your favorite photographs. One of the key benefits of these prints is their exceptional color vibrancy and sharpness, which is achieved through a specialized dye sublimation process. This process involves infusing dyes directly into the aluminum surface at a high temperature and pressure, which produces colors that are incredibly rich and true to life.
