Serigraph

“Wow! Over there! Perched on the palmetto! Ever see such complimentary complementary colors? The painted bunting, adult male, is a bird you must see to believe, but that’s not easy. With all that direct male advertising in living color, you might expect him to come on like a billboard, but he shyly shuns the boulevard for the underbrush. Next to him, his mate is regular plain Jane. Why? So she won’t turn a nest building with baby buntings into a dead giveaway”.
