INDIGO BUNTING, GREEN, MICHIGAN, MAY 19, 2014
Pentax 55-300 at 300mm
1/320 sec. f8
Buntings look like goldfinches dipped into a tub of blue ink, and they're the same size and with the same tendency to spook, flit away and return in almost the same instant to the feeders. Three of the merry little birds are on the property at the moment, and we hope they hang around all summer instead of moving on to greener pastures as birds tend to do. This one was captured at dusk.
