Red-bellied Woodpecker Hanging on to a Berry

Although not as sharp as I would have liked, I was happy to
capture this Red-bellied Woodpecker with the berry.
One of my "lucky" shots :)
Have a Wonderful Day!

The red headed bird gives a nice avian view. The red berries are disappearing one-by-one by the creature. You wonder if this is how he keeps his feathers red...

Hilary said...

Wow.. how do you do this every time? I mean really. You must live behind your lens. :) Beautiful, Kerri!

No doubt about. I've barely scratched the surface of Ruby Tuesday this week and this will, hands down, be my favorite. Love woodpeckers.

You know when and how to be ready with that camera. Love the reds! Love the pose! Love the picture! Were you out in the woods, or do you have a special set up near the house to invite these creatures so close to you?

i am always surprised to see the American robin as he is so different from ours. But both birds are lovely.

Holly said...

This is a gorgeous shot for Ruby Tuesday! I love the pops of red throughout the photo - in the berries, on the bird's head, and even a few splashes on the leaves. Beautiful!
