the trouble with red

What is it with digital camera sensors and the color red.  Bright red tends to bleed and lose detail.  I am never sure whether to underexpose or overexpose or try to handle it later in the photo editor.  The problem seems to be at its worst when there are large blocks of red in the image.  Very frustrating.

This particular photo was taken at considerable distance because I was being blocked by a low brick wall.  It was one of those times when I take a lot of photos and hope that one turns out OK.
