Cool Cardinal, actually resident in Lamar, CO

Up to a few pairs of Northern Cardinals have been resident in Lamar, CO for some years. Today I saw both a male and female moving about the Lamar Woods area together, presumably a mated pair.
I spotted this male as he was grooming, and thinking he was hidden behind some branches of a tree. I stayed very quiet and took these intimate photos through the branches as he preened and postured.
I had to include these wild guy pics as he shook out his feathers. Later I heard a Cardinal singing, ah, love is in the air and this guy was as handsome as he could be. SeEtta
