Northern Cardinal

This is a pretty funny shot. See, it was a windy day, and the wind was coming from directly behind this male Northern Cardinal. Every time a strong gust of wind would blow, the crest on the top of his head would stand straight up. I've always thought "Gesundheit!" would be a good sub-title for this one.
