Indigo Bunting

Today’s post comes from my recent visit to the Loess Bluffs NWR, in northwestern Missouri. As I drove the auto tour route, I was fortunate to have a beautiful, male Indigo Bunting up close. As I sat in my vehicle, using it as a blind, I photographed this beauty for several minutes before it decided to move on. Here are a few of my favorite images:

  • Lovely.

  • Thanks, Adam. Yes, they are truly a piece of art, especially when the sun glistens off their blue body :o)
