Pic of the Day

Indigo Bunting, Passerina cyanea: Horse Cove; Gurley, Alabama
     I shot this Indigo Bunting at my feeders this afternoon.  This bird and its mate have been visiting my feeders for a couple of weeks now.  I have been eager to get photos but I have not had time until this afternoon.  I put a branch in just the right place and the bunting landed on it numerous times.  However, as soon as it alighted on the branch it hopped to the ground to feed on millet.  After numerous tries I finally got this image.

Nikon D800, Nikkor 500mm f4, 1/80 sec. @ f7.1


  1. Hi Kelly. I've got a blue grosbeak coming to the feeders also. I'm trying to get a shot of him as well. Thanks for your comments. Bobby
