Standing perfectly still while filming during yesterday’s gloriously warm afternoon, a beautiful female Downy Woodpecker flew to a tree not five feet from where I was working. She was very much obscured by foliage as she tapped her way up and down the trunk, turning the tree into a pantry for her winter supply of nuts and seeds. For a quicksilver moment I caught a clear look and snapped a shot through the leaves.
Downy Woodpeckers are common on Cape Ann throughout all four seasons.
Per usual, amazing photo! I never ever see what you see, despite the hunts! You are amazing g and thanks do so much for what you do.
Thank you Donna for your always kind words, so very much appreciated <3
