Happy New Year! Happy New Year and Good luck to everyone! At the end of the past year I want to show the bird's luxurious beauty and the amazing colors are exceptionally effective.
The brightly colored male bunting cardinal is considered the most colorful songbird in North America.
Painted bunting is a songbird of the cardinal family.
This is an extremely timid and mysterious bird, it is easier to observe the singing males. Birds feed on insects and their larvae. Great oatmeal is famous not only for its beauty, but also for its good singing!

15. Here is a general shot of a bird and animal watering hole.

Thank you all and Happy New Year! Happy New Year!

Thank! Happy New Year!
The brightly colored male bunting cardinal is considered the most colorful songbird in North America and the color is incomparable!
Nature has tried very hard and one of my favorite birds from these places.
This baby is very bright and the color is incomparable, and especially in good lighting you can see all the beauty.

in this publication, of course, a wider selection!
I'm thinking, is it worth comparing the color of this bird with the parrots?)
But what is really unique about the cardinal is the beautifully outlined red plumage around the pupil!

PS the opposite bank of the watering hole seems somewhat distant from the shelter, is 500mm enough?

Thank you, Sasha!
parrots is an interesting comparison - but I think the colors and colors are also a little different.
Cardinals are very nice birds, but this bird of incomparable beauty and for the sake of this bird it would be necessary to get to these places again.

As for the shelter, part of the watering hole is made close to the shelter and part is farther away, and everyone is calmer.
I shot at 600mm and also at 300mm and sometimes I used an extender and also used a macro ring to enlarge the frame.
Many of them shoot at 500 or 300mm.
Later I will show the female too, and the color is not so bright.

Thanks for attention!
The place is called Santa Clara Ranch and is located in the south of Texas. Here is a link to their site - http://www.santaclararanch.com/index.html

And I will say the place is simply heavenly and it is worth visiting and there are many different species of birds and animals there are very interesting in these places live and most importantly, you can bring very good results and shooting only from the shelter.
They have been feeding them with various treats for almost 6 years.

If you come to this place for the first time, you must have a guide for two days, 1 person - $ 125.00 / day. For shelter $ 110 per day. You just need to make an appointment in advance as many people want to visit this place.

After two days, you can work without a guide and only pay for the shelter.
Most of the people there take the full tour right away, but it's not cheap.
But I don't need it, and I like to work alone, and I have experience and I know how and what to feed the birds and animals, and you can even bring your own perches.

Since we were the first time in these places, we took a guide for a couple of days - they showed us different shelters, explained what and how it works, and the rest of the time I worked myself and only paid for the shelter and brought very good results.

In this place, 6 shelters were built - part for small birds and animals, with a watering hole, part for birds of prey.
The water shelters are deepened to allow for ground level and reflective shots. You can install different perches near the watering hole.
Predator shelters, on the other hand, are raised to remove the sky from the frame.

As for how the watering hole is filled there, near the shelter, they brought water and, if necessary, they supplement the water and this is very convenient.

If you're lucky, American Bodcait, deer, bakeries, armadillos, earth squirrels, different types of snakes and many more interesting things can be seen and of course different species of birds.
In the heat, animals and birds come to the water to drink and swim, which is very convenient for us for photographers.

Personally, I want to go back and if it works out we also plan to go to the next winter so in November they have a very pleasant light and other species of birds arrive.
We were in the summer in May and at this time in Texas it is very hot and the main thing is to always take a thermos with cold water.
If you have any questions, write and you can also ask the organizers through their website questions and they will immediately answer.

If you are interested, here are all my series from these luxurious places - http://liza-photo.livejournal.com/tag/Tex%D0%B0s

So, there is still a lot to disassemble and I will try to show what I managed to see and shoot.
