Mother Load Painted Buntings

I was so happy to finally spot these little birds.  It was not
easy to find them and they were pretty shy.  Now if truth
were to be told, I might tell you this is actually just 2 birds out
of 8 shots I was able to get before they flew off never to be
found again.  They loved the middle of the road and this big pipe
where they would fly up and chatter, then fly down to the ground again.
Really comical and entertaining.  This image used a texture called
Ancient Wall which I liked as it toned down that glaring rust and
gave some softness to the busy background.  Taken in June 2012
at Hagerman Wildlife Refuge on pad L.
