Red-bellied Woodpecker

Red-bellied Woodpecker7014I went looking for birds today and wasn’t having much luck. Usually in situations like this I can fall back on something positive about the adventure, but not today, it was just cold and miserable. But then, on my way out of the woods, I spotted them. A pair of Red-bellied Woodpeckers playing tag in a tree just up ahead. They were having so much fun frolicking that they hardly noticed me. Normally that’s a good thing, I can get nice and close, but if they don’t ever look my way I might not get any decently posed photos. Just before they moved on though, he posed perfectly for me and then found something delicious to slurp up!Red-bellied Woodpecker6968
