“Once in a while a piece of blue sky drops to my backyard”. This analogy is based on the Indigo Bunting showing up in my backyard for a short delightful visit!. It’s always a treat just looking at this lovely bird, it is a double treat being able to photograph it.
If you have never seen one personally , let me describe it for you: This bird when facing direct sunlight its plumage becomes as brilliant as a neon light! It’s like watching a cartoon animation moving around mixed with reality. However, when flying and depending on the natural light angle, will appear to be black!
