I had gone to a new location for hummingbird photography, but being unsuccessful, tried a meadow for songbirds, and saw this Indigo Bunting. ( This Bunting was I believe, a year old, as they have some brown colouration, the first year, but are all blue when they arrive as a two year old from the tropics, for the breeding season here). Even with the brown, they are a very attractive bird, and a fine singer, as well.  At the end of the day, no hummingbird images, but I felt fortunate to be able to see and photograph the Indigo Bunting.
