Painted buntings nest over most of Texas, but this colorful bird was captured last year by Don Jeane at the South Llano River State Park near Junction. Jeane, who has searched out and photographed birds all over the country and into Canada, said the birds are very common in that area of Texas. Jeane's photo won the recent migratory bird photo contest. He wins two movie passes. For more bird photos see Pages E1 and E3.

You too could win movie passes if you win our newest reader submitted photo contest - the best sports fan. See details on B1.
