The Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma has lots of Indigo Buntings during the summer. I photographed this male Indigo Bunting a few days ago.
In the summer, the male is a brilliant blue to attract a mate during the breeding season.
The male is brown in the winter, while the female is brown all year.
How I Got The Photo:
This bird was near Shugg’s Pond. Shugg’s Pond is located near Reeve’s Boat Ramp.
I was hand-holding my camera and lens while shooting out the passenger window of my pickup.
