Indigo Buntings & Generation Fig Tree '09 (Updated)

As promised, here are some more photos of the indigo buntings...






In other news, the Generation Fig Tree '09 online art show "opened" today, including 3 of my entries. Award winners will be announced next month. Wish me luck! (Update; I didn't win. The book of the show is available here.)

They seem to be very curious birds too. They really eyeball the house a lot.

The indigo buntings are beautiful! What an amazing, luminous blue they are! I don't think we have them on Long Island.

Of course we wish you the best of luck with the art show!!!

Hey lovely,

Love these shots! Hope you and Charles have a great Easter weekend! Working on the margarita, the perfect spring/summer drink, if you ask me.

I've never seen these beautiful birds in person. Thanks for sharing your pictures.

Lana Gramlich said...

Tabib; Thank you. They only bless us with their presence for a couple of weeks, as they migrate north. We're always happy to have them, though!

Ivan; Thanks.

Ello; Thanks & thanks!

NW; Thank you. Bird photography's much easier if you feed them in the backyard. They'll stick around for that. ;) *L*

Charles; That's 'cuz you're so hot. They're like, "DAMN, check THAT out!"

Lynda; Yeah, I never saw them growing up there (or when I lived in Canada.) I'm hoping someday that we see painted buntings, which are sometimes sighted in the area.
Thanks for the luck! ;)

Michelle; Thanks & back atcha on the weekend. Living in Louisiana got me hooked on Margaritas. With such a tasty drink, I don't think I can ever go back to beer.

Skippy; There's really no such thing as "late" in the blogosphere. ;) Thanks much!

I just love these little birds. They are so purty! I wish I'd see them around here...

Good luck with your entries! :o)

Holly; Thanks much! Unfortunately the indigo buntings will be leaving in about a week, but we enjoy them as much as we can while they're here.
