Painted Bunting

One of my main goals this summer is to get some good images of painted and indigo buntings at the nature refuge about 15 minutes from where I live and so far it looks like it will be a promising endeavor. In just over two weeks I have come across some very cooperative individuals of the painted bunting on multiple visits to the refuge and have encountered quite a few indigos as well. I have gotten some decent shots of the painted so far, like the ones above, but still have not gotten the shot that I have in mind. But seeing as it is only May, I think I will have many more chances in the coming 4 months or so to get the images I want. One of these was taken on a cloudy day last week and the other this past Wednesday afternoon under some difficult late afternoon light and it did not help matters that I did not have the flash settings right...
