Blue in the Yellow and Green
I set the alarm for 5:30, determined to get to the sunflower fields early enough to have plenty of time to capture shots of the Indigo Buntings. When I awoke, it was pouring rain, but my weather app said it would stop around 7 am so I had some coffee and headed out about 7:30.
The rain had kept the crowds away, so there were only 6 or7 cars in the parking lot when I arrived. There were a few buntings around, but I had trouble seeing them because they seemed to land low, under the flowers making it impossible to get a shot most of the time. Finally, this one landed within my sight and I managed to get a few shots off. It's not the money shot, but it will have to do for this year. I have included another one in extra which shows this same bunting giving me the stink-eye with a bit of attitude as I tried to get his photo.
