Painted Bunting
Photographer: Lois Settlemeyer
Location: Lake Wales, Florida
Story: 
I had seen pictures of this beautiful bird in books but never in the wild. On a visit to Bok Tower, a pair of Painted Bunting were flitting through the bushes. The sun was going down so I had to open up the aperture which through the background out of focus and created this beautiful image.
