Camera Critters: Bunting & Baby


Indigo Bunting

This morning I decided to join Willard for a morning of wildlife photography.  Although relatively common the Indigo Buntings are very elusive anytime I try to photograph them.  This morning a male came to Willard's natural bird feeder posing nicely for his photograph.

 With its coat soaked by the morning dew an innocent little fawn pauses to surveys the photographers.   A moment later it bounded away to explore and learn more about its new world full of wonder as mom grazes peacefully in the background.

Hi Coy. Wonderful photos. The Indigo Bunting is beautiful and that Fawn is priceless. We're in Fairbanks Alaska right now visiting our daughter and friends Marty and Elaine (Arctic View).

How fortunate you were! The photos are awesome. I got one indigo bunting my whole life but had to crop harshly to see it at all, so it's a lousy shot. Now with your photo I can see what I should've seen. The fawn is the perfect picture of innocence.
