Cherish is my favorite word, and I cherish the ability of turning the routine into a beautiful moment.
Nature creates in me, a spiritual and meditative time to bring peace, harmony and balance, into an otherwise ordinary day~

Woodie Atop a Utility Pole~

Got to view another cool Red-headed Woodpecker.  This one was way up high on a utility pole, but I did manage to get three photograpghs before it flew away~

  4. Hey Mary, It's only us birders that go around looking and finding things at the top of roadside poles. Well spotted, good birding.

  5. Gorgeous catch!
    I see woodpeckers quite often (there are 4 different species around here), but I never spotted one on top of a pole.

  7. Great capture! I don't see those very often and am always thrilled when I do see one. They like high spots that can catch bugs from.
