Cruising down the road this afternoon, a flash of red caught my attention. Curious, I turned the car around and discovered this bold, beautiful, pileated woodpecker working away at this rotten tree. Leaving the car, I stood in the middle of the road snapping pictures. When I crossed the double yellow, that was too close for his comfort and he flew off. It’s just as well as I likely would have continued snapping pics until my memory card filled up.
