Stopped by my only reliable painted bunting spot last weekend and saw a lady with a hugeass Canon setup in the area. Didn't ask what her gear was but the lens appeared to be around 3 feet long with the sunshade and the cap size appeared to be between 7 and 9 inches. I was slightly Jealous but would have been badly so had she been shooting Nikon gear I am familiar with. She said she was a pro which sort of goes without saying since most amateurs won't drop the approx 12-15K in gear she was using. Anyway, that's the J part.
As luck would have it a male Painted Bunting briefly appeared and I was able to get a few shots off before it disappeared as they typically do for me. Unfortunately my ISO was set too low to get my shutter speed up where it needs to be but at least it was on a branch instead of the usual bird feeder just out of the frame.
