Photo taken at the Laguna Seca Ranch in Deep South Texas July 7, 2019.

Thought it was interesting to see just how small a Painted Bunting is compared to a Cardinal.

what an interesting image Gene. The off Cardinal plays a trump card in the interest stakes. Thanks for showing this.

The little bunting is captured very nicely in its own right - the cardinal looming in the background adds a whole new dimension to the image as a whole - almost menacing! I like this a lot. Well done for really thinking outside the box, Gene!

Very clever to catch this comparison. Makes me wonder what happened next too- always interesting to see these interactions. Sometimes the little one wins!
