In My Face!

I saw movement out of the corner of my eye and glanced out my RV window.  On the oak tree 10 feet away at my eye level was a female Pileated Woodpecker busily foraging the bark for ants.

Even in our tight RV quarters, my cameras are always within reach.

I was able to fire off five photos that filled my frame through the window before she quickly moved on.  Only one is decent, but to date it’s my best capture of the Pileated Woodpecker.  The other four became blurs of moving and jumping.  And that is okay, I am happy with this shot!

I couldn’t have had her in my face any closer!

Did you know that this is the woodpecker that the cartoon character, Woody Woodpecker, was created by Walter Lantz in 1940?   🙂
