I always look forward to the colorful migratory birds that arrive in the spring and this morning was the first sighting this year of the male Indigo Bunting who is a vibrant shade of blue...

It was only 38 degrees this morning and this tiny bird has its feathers puffed out trying to keep warm. He was glad to get something to eat after the miles he traveled.

    Perfect capture and timing! The shallow DOF, the bright green of the background, and the pile of gray seeds make the bright blue Bunting POP!

    Now the birds are confused, hope the weather warms up this week, chilly here as well. Great in color and detail.
