I don’t know much about birds. I don’t know if this is a male or female or even if it is a woodpecker. I know it was in my front yard, and just as still as a bird can be this time of year, daring me to take this picture. I was so surprised when it didn’t fly away, like most birds do when I try to take their picture, but disappointed that this is not a better image. This bird was still quite high up the tree and I am astounded by how well it blends into its surroundings.
Winter is by no means my favorite season but as a visual person I seek to find the beauty in everything. Click here to see my vision of Winter.
