The blazing Blue Bunting again

I found this rare Blue Bunting again today at Frontera Audubon. I spotted it foraging just 6 feet in front of me but hard to see as it was in the middle of the vegetation(see bottom pic for pic before I cropped the photo to enlarge it more than the 8X of my lens). Fortunately though not sunny, it was bright out so the color came out better than my other pics of the bird in deep shade.
Again I did nothing to enhance the color--this is the brilliant, shocking blue that this bird is! Not far from this rarity was the female Painted Bunting. SeEtta
