Another Red Head

Birds fascinate me! This little guy - a downy woodpecker - just pecked away at the suet and wasn't bothered by me at all.


After I downloaded the shot I saw that I got him with his tongue sticking out. How neat is that?

Aah, Agatha Christie one of my favorite mystery writers!
When I say the small version of your photo of today, I thought it was a painting! But going here I saw it looks that way because the setting for the background -I love it, very cute!

The woodpeckers are one of my all time favorites.. I love that little downy...and they can be loud to be so small... It's marvelous.

What are the chances of catching a red headed woodpecker with it's tiny little tongue peeking out? It was meant to be!
