I took these pictures with an aging smartphone.
It don't do well when I zoom it in.
So the pictures will be fuzzy.
With that proviso, let's check out that woodpecker.
This photo of the busy 'pecker doesn't show you his beautiful coloring.
Or much of the detail of his body.
But it does prove that I have one in our neighborhood.
He was busy in a tree in our neighbor's yard tonight for a long time.
The branches aren't very big so I can't imagine that he's going to hollow out a home but I'm not real familiar with woodpeckers so I'll just have to wait and see.
Maybe he's just practicing.
But I did have a bit of a surprise when I took my first picture tonight.
While trying to focus on the woodpecker (lower left), I was amazed to catch a curious hummingbird in mid-air (upper right).
Talk about a great catch!
Neither one of them is in focus.
This isn't Wild Kingdom, y'know.
