Flying rainbows

I had heard there were painted buntings at Circle B Bar Reserve in early November. I hadn’t seen one in years so I headed out hoping to see one. I walked halfway down the trail and saw a flash of color fly into the bushes. I could barely see him hiding. I snapped the above in case that was the only sighting I would get.

Farther down the trail, several people were taking pictures of this guy.  He was eating close to the trail but we had to shoot directly into the sun.

A few minutes later, he moved outside of the bush but was still directly into the sun.

I continued on and saw this guy fly into the bottom of a bush. He was very accommodating and posed nicely but didn’t stay long. Only for a few seconds.

It’s always fun to see these special birds.
