While walking along a lake located at the Rich Grissom nature area in Viera, FL. I came across this male Painted Bunting searching for and eating seeds, This was just after a heavy rain storm, the sky was still very overcast and the light very diffused which made the colors really stand out. I used a Nikon D850 camera with a Nikon 800mm f5.6 lens with a 1.4 extender. The long lens let me keep back about 25 feet from the Bunting so as not to disturb him. I was able to images it for about 5 minutes.
