knocking on wood
his volume belies
his diminutive size

made me smile 🙂
Perfect haiku to excellent photo. As soon as I saw the title, I knew we’d get a woodpecker. I must be well tuned in to you.
Wow what a fantastic photo. Love the woodpecker.
Your photo reminds me of the cut-paper silhouettes on my grandmother’s wall. She had a Victorian couple in a garden, and an English garden scene rather than the more usual profiles. I loved them, and thought paper-cutting was great fun.

The loud echo in the wood, can almost be heard.
I can hear his kin knocking on one of our trees right now. 🙂 A delightful post to appear on Arbor Day.
I loved the title … and the idea of the post: knock .. knock..
So true! I love the silhouette, too.
A perfect duet…with the woodpecker providing unique percussion. Thank you!

It is good because if offers only the witnessing. It sees something beautiful and sees it. And like the soul, passively observes with no thought beyond to control or complicate. It seeks nothing from you but offers wholly its world.
There is its simple purity. It speaks without words. It does not tell.
This made me smile 🙂 Lovely!
Wonderful silhouette photography.
Very beautiful photo shot!
“Nice” is understatement for this photo but i can’t come up with a better word (y)
Love the sound!
yes the sound is hollow but echoes – it’s lovely
Your poem says it best – what a racket they make!
This is such an amazing photo! It says a lot for very little words.
