Visitor, A Social Distance

You can hear them long before you see one. The sound of a tree being chopped down. A Pileated Woodpecker on a dead branch is like a chain saw. Sometimes you can see the pieces of wood being tossed in the air.

My back fence is the start of a small pine forest. While it’s certainly not like a marsh/swamp for photography plenty of critters do live back there.

Not the right gear for these shots, but I didn’t expect to shoot these. The best camera is the one you have with you, or sitting on the porch.

  1. Stunning shots, Ted. Not always easy to photograph woodpeckers, I find. I hear them out in the local woods, but they are usually too high up the trees or hidden to get a good shot in, so well done.
