What a Beauty!



It's hard to see but this is the prettiest bird I have ever seen in my yard. I pulled into the drive and it was on the ground. Naturally just as the camera was about to click it flew into the tree. These are the best shots and blow ups I can get. I'm told it is a male painted bunting. I wish it would come back. It was beautiful.

We don't have the painted buntings around here. He is a spectacular fellow. Around here you can sometimes see an indigo bunting which is iridescent blue. Do you think they might be cousins?
