Photo taken at Laguna Seca Ranch in South Texas May 2, 2018.

Nikon D850, 300mm lens, 1.4 TC, 1/1000 sec at f/9.0, ISO 400.

A few Painted Bunting males have this yellow area on their chest.  The yellow, I think, is distinctive and adds even more color to an already colorful bird.

Nice perch and sharp picture. The bird looks nice in contrast with BG.

Stunning colors, Gene. I love the touch of yellow on the chest. It makes a big difference to me.

A gorgeous frame, the perch, detail and BG all compliment this well detailed Bunting, that d850 is looking better all the time :)
