I commune with mine own heart and my spirit made diligent search. Psalms 77: 6

Searching high
Meant plans to fly
Above the head.
This precocious bird,
Was not brain dead..
To find that the suet block
Was another avenue to go
For a menu out of the snow...
Poetry by me AJP

As you guessed we had more snow this morning and I shot this image before we cleared off the bird feeder. I captured this right before the Red Bellied Woodpecker flew up to the suet block to finish its meal.

Thank you Ann Reece for nominating this photo on 1-19-2014..Appreciate your kind gesture.

    So pretty!! We have husband and wife woodpeckers in our big pine tree. Is this shot from inside or outside?

    Thanks for the comment...This was shot from inside the house through the window.. I also saw
    the female cardinal eating beside the woodpecker...they looked pretty together and I happened
    to get a shot of them.

    An almost black and white photograph with a splash of red, much nicer than a partial saturation image created in editing.
