I'm having to go back to earlier this year for some images, as there has not been very many subjects to photograph at present ( hopefully that will change soon). Anyway, the male bunting is a favourite subject, due to it's colour, which is quite striking, but changes partially to brown, for the winter months in the Southern regions ( Mexico- Central America). Always great to see and hear them during the Spring-Summer.

Beautiful pose and image. The little bit of dandelion puff in the beak adds to it!

Yes, everything comes together beautifully in this lovely image, Paul - the seed in the beak just ices it!
