...Deed and truth shall assure our hearts before Him. I John 3: 18-19

Making a big fuss
Is this Downy bird
Who truly is a narcissus
With manner self-assured!

Loving his reflection;
In the eyes of own inspection,
There is none greater than he
Nor one more handsome to see.
Poetry by me, AJP

This Male Downy woodpecker appeared several times this morning to gaze at his own reflection. It was hard to capture him in a still moment as he was flying all over the window:)
I ended up having to trace around the spots on the glass with the blur filter in my photo shop from his pecking on the window. What a character:)

    A handsome little fellow! Good shot! I've just about given up on bird shots because of the distance from the house.
