Northern Flicker

Northern Flicker0026This is what I call the glamour shots pose, it’s a pretty standard pose for the extremely timid Northern Flicker after I pass by too closely to the base of the tree to which they’re clinging and they blast off outta there. This is the moment they realize they are in the presence of a world-class wilderness explorer and ponder coming back to get a closer look. They never come back for a closer look.
