Great capture, Seedbud. A beautiful bird
Nice shot – though it makes me cold looking at it.
My hunger is for spring too
I saw one of these here in PA on Feb. 26th! I unfortunately didn’t get a photo, it was too quik to fly away.
Your photos are such a gift. I start my day opening your image and taking in the beauty and your words.
My deep thanks for your daily offering. It’s great!

Lindsay, thank you so much for your kinds words. You have had quite a winter in Boston!!! Except for this year winter in Boston is much milder than here. I lived in Boston for 20+ years and have been in the Upper Valley for 5 – although I visited often. I’m so glad I can keep the beauty of the upper valley near you through the blog. Spring will come soon for you!
Very best, Catherine

I’ll bet that wasn’t easy, catching the woodpecker in action! Good job. I love the poem, too.
That’s a beautiful picture, and such bright colors to offset the snow.
Wow, what a shot, I really like that. Talk about being in the right place at the right time. Well Done!

Great photo! Spring will be here in a couple of weeks and, hopefully, the weather will act accordingly.
Very beautiful photo shot! 🙂

What a great capture! Love seeing that face that is so hard to see in the wild.
He’s not the only one hungering for spring!
So many of us share that hunger right now! I love the pops of red in the snow!
Nicely captured. He’s well camouflaged!
