Meditate upon these things ....I Timothy 5: 15

The Red Bellied woodpeckers have a habit of swooping down on the side of the feeder before they get their self situated and maybe take a brief moment to meditate while they they get their bearings.

I like the fact that she is bowing her head so that it makes her look like she has ear muffs and also it is very clear that she is a female as the red doesn't extend to the top of her head...I never noticed before there was that much red in front of the beak, but it pays to check things out and to shoot from another angle.

    A striking and beautiful portrait.. I love this sweet pose! I'm often surprised by how much detail there really is to the color and markings of our feathered friends..

    Well done! The female of the species never has the stunning colors of the male, but they are still very pretty.
