The Red-Bellied Woodpecker

The Red-bellied Woodpecker has a black and white zebra-backed pattern on its back, a red nape and crown (males). These woodpeckers prefer to feed in the upper parts of live and dead trees. Oak trees are preferred. Surface probing and gleaning techniques are used more than pecking or hammering like other woodpeckers.

Squirrel Photography

On Squirrel Patrol

A lot of squirrels in the yard still to photograph, but at least they are leaving my feeders alone now. I have replaced all of the ones in my bird-watching area with the Squirrel Proof “Yankee Flipper” ones, and saving a ton of seed! Here are some recent shots of my furry friends down on the ground, where they should be!

Some Recent Art Sales

Yes, I know it has been a while since I have added a new post. I have been quite busy with life, and yes still taking a lot of photos but have not had the time to process and publish a lot of them. That will change starting this week! But to get things moving I figured I would share some of my recent sales with you

Bluebird Watching Photos

Beautiful Bluebirds

Spring has officially sprung as the bluebirds are out in force, and have been a consistent visitor in the yard the past week. In today’s post i have several shots from my backyard bluebird watching. Eastern Bluebirds live in meadows and openings surrounded by trees that offer suitable nest holes. With the proliferation of nest boxes and bluebird trails, bluebirds are now a common sight along roads, field edges, golf courses, and other open areas.

As usual, if you would like to submit your ideas for clues to be considered for the next hunt, be sure to drop a comment with your ideas!

Wildlife From The Lens

I have not had the spare time I would have liked the past couple of weeks, so my time behind a lens has been dwindling. That said, I have had a few shots here and there piling up of some critters and other wildlife that I have been lucky enough to grab a capture of. And I have taken a little chunk of time to go back through old photo folders that have been forgotten about and collecting dust to find a couple of nature gems that spurred some photo processing inspiration. I hope you enjoy.
