Like many species of wild birds, the cardinal's male is the brightly colored one of the pair, while the female must be satisfied with a more plain appearance. Most female cardinals I have seen sport a pinkish tan plumage, but this one in Southern Texas was so green that it was sometimes difficult to spot it sitting in a tree. I feel very fortunate to have been able to snap this shot.
