|Peck, peck, peck|
|Anything in there?|
At the end of last week I took time to take a walk in the woods next to our house. The weather was a little chilly but it was clear and sunny and the fall colors were too enticing. I actually have a pretty interesting story about this walk but I was eager to share this series of photos of a female red-bellied woodpecker. I was shooting into the sinking sun so the back lighting is kind of rough on a few shots but I hope you will see the interesting foraging and feasting of this busy bird.
It was lots of fun to watch, and try to get a great photograph. At one point she landed so close to me I started muttering in a whisper to myself, "Oh gosh, oh gosh." I sounded a little like the cartoon octopus Oswald! Well enjoy these shots, and some fun evolution defying facts about woodpeckers!

Every once in a while I prefer a little scientific info to help praise the Lord for His creation. I knew instead of a written devotion for this post, I just had to share this short 5 minute video of Dr. Jobe Martin explaining how the woodpecker defies evolution. Watch and see how God is truly magnificent in showing His handiwork through even a little bird!
