I can't believe how well this bird blends into the grass despite its vibrant colors. I usually never see these guys until they take flight. They tend to hunker down and keep there head well hidden... for obvious reasons.

Its when they pop their head up to see where your at that gives them away. The flash of red caught my attention.

#4 Wish I could have focused better but the grass was in the way and the bird was moving fast.

Too bad they don't take bribes to come out in the open. Nice captures.
