Strong Sock - Lady Cardinal
Lady Cardinal represents the IL State Bird, the Cardinal. I decided to focus on the female rather than the male. Typically, when you think of the cardinal you automatically think of the bright red male cardinal. To me, the female coloring in much more interesting and appealing. In this colorway you will find various shades of grayish browns to an orange to a red orange.
