This was my first time visiting a sunflower field. I had heard and seen some amazing things about a local field that was a haven to birds like Indigo Buntings and Goldfinches. I thought I would drive the hour to go see for myself. I was armed with both my cameras, one for distance and one for wide, so I could try my hand in sunflower shooting. And while it was super hot and sticky and buggy and very crowded I managed to get a few shots I liked, even though the Indigo Buntings were not all that interested in posing for me in the field. I saw them in the trees though. Here is how I spent my evening.
