When I’m setting at my computer desk – I’ll take a picture of that sometime when it’s cleaned off – I have some lovely views of our backyard. On my left side, about 8 feet away is a smaller window that looks out onto a nice tree and the roof of one of our sheds. I like this view because in the summer its just full of green leaves. It’s very peaceful.
The other day when I looked out, there was a whole group of woodpeckers in the tree. I’ve seen woodpeckers around here, but only one or two at at time. There were like six in this tree! I wanted to go to the window and take a photo but there were a couple problems. First, they were all hopping around busily and didn’t seem inclined to stay in one place for a photo shoot. Second, I didn’t want to scare them away with my movements, so I just took the photos from where I was setting. (This is my explanation for the bad photography).
Here’s the best one of the few I took. I went ahead and circled the woodpeckers for you. I should have made this like a hidden picture puzzle, like you did in grade school. Crap. I always think of these ideas too late. If if makes you feel better, I may have missed one or two, you can try to find more if you like.
And now, here’s a photo that David took the other day. It has nothing to do with Woodpeckers, I just think it’s funny.
