Our recent snowy weather has brought my favorite photographic subject back to the feeder – the elusive red-bellied woodpecker.

I found this critter stopping by to help himself to a peanut butter-bird seed mix I had put out for the birds. I don’t like to encourage wild animals to get that cozy in our yard, so I won’t be putting out peanut butter again. In the meantime, he had a great meal and wasn’t just playing possum.
I only had a few seconds to snap this photo. The black and white kitty who hangs out under my bird feeder hoping for a meal, decided to spend a few seconds peering into my world. Maybe she was cold or just wanted to see who puts out the food for all those birds she wants to eat. In any case, I took the photo-op. I may try some of my photo editing software on this one, and share the changes later. And I sure wish the window had been cleaner that day.
I took this photo with my iPod instead of my fancy camera – not bad I think.
