Plumb Cryptic

Plumb Cryptic depicts an American woodcock exploding off of the forest floor with honey locust seed pods and leaves flying. The cryptic coloration of this bird hides it well. A shotgun shell buried in the soil suggests the problem of plumbism in nature. Humans are part of nature, but their hidden impacts affect nature.
