There is an eating frenzy at the bird feeders this time of year. Natural food sources are scarce, so we do what we can to take care of our feathered friends! My new 70-300mm zoom lens arrived earlier this week, the one I have been wanting for a couple of years now. I finally broke down and got it since I know it will come in handy for future trips. After working all week, I tried it out just a little while ago. The late afternoon sun was low in the horizon, casting a dramatic side light. As I settled next to the window of my home office, camera in hand, a red-bellied woodpecker flew in from the nearby forest and offered me a sublime pose in-between nibbles.
God’s creatures know how to make us smile, don’t they?
