Indigo Bunting

Today was my first occasion to capture a male Indigo Bunting

While fishing on my favorite lake I noticed a pair of male Indigo Buntings flit across a small cove and alight in the brush along the shoreline. Aproaching slowly with the boat I was able to manuever for a clear shot of the one stripping grass seeds.

The bird was making short work of filling his crop by grasping the stems below the seeds and stripping the seeds with a quick upward motion.

After only a few shots the Indigo Bunting flew deeper into the surrounding cover leaving me with my first images of yet another beautiful bird species.

This is a wonderful action shot! Getting only a few shots is okay when you get such a good shot as this one.
