Downy Feathers

The little things? The little moments? 
 They aren't little.
- John Zabat-Zinn 

A Male Downy Woodpecker poses in the pines off of my deck.
I am so IN LOVE with the birds that visit.
They bring me such happiness!

He is a beauty.
Enjoy your weekend. Maybe with the warmer weather you will be able to get some more pictures of some birds!

Ruth said...

You must have a terrific lens. Do you shoot your birds through a window?

Fantastic shot, such a bright scene.

Kerri said...

Ruth,
Yes I shoot most through the sliding glass door on my deck.
I have a 70-300mm lens that I use...always on the long end :)

You're so lucky to have such a variety of visitors! At BBR, only finches and hummers get close to the house. Others do come, but are tough to get close enough to capture as good as what you've done here.

Linda said...

You are just so blessed to get all those bird visits. You must live in a great place.
Your picture is stunning!

PERBS said...

Yes, indeed! You are truly blessed!!!!!! Such a gorgeous colorign for that bird!!!!

Nice Kerri, it's good to have some good birds stopping by.

Becky and Gary said...

What a great shot Kerri. The green really sets off the red and black feathers.

Lovely shot of the Downy Woodpecker. I can't blame you one bit for loving these beauties. They're none too shy either, eh?

Kate said...

It's a beautiful bird and a spectacular photo. Your lens must be a pleasure to use!

If only I had such lovely visitors around my home! This is another breathtaking photo! The photo is so clear and the colours are so bright! Just fantastic!

Thanks for the visit and comment. Your photography is tremendous - I've enjoyed my first visit here and I've scrolled back a long way through your blog.

You would enjoy the photography of a very talented US blogger - Old Man Lincoln.

Do keep in touch.

Looks like you have a delightful place for birds to visit- lots of trees for them to hide. Very nice shot!

Simply stunning!

This is a simply stunning photo! And I don't use that word lightly :)

Another beautiful picture, Kerri. You must have such a lovely yard.

Such a beautiful bird, a Downy Woodpecker, I suppose.

Congratulations on winning a spot on David's POD list, which brought me here. :-)

CG said...

Gorgeous shot. Birds really lifet my spirits too.

Moannie said...

I am so envious of your ability to get such beautiful pictures. I bet you have a state of the art camera with long lenses and a trillion pixels. Congratulations on POTD

Stunning shot Kerri. I can hardly believe how close you must have been!

Ms. Math said...
