A great shot of that woodpecker especially in the 2nd. The fast motion caused that abstract capture. It looks like a fairy!

The posture of the bird is amusing! The white smoke like formations have interesting patterns. Nice captures.

Hi Diane,
LOVE the new header!! What a beautiful photo! I don´t think I´ve ever seen such purple prickly pears! I'm just back from a week in the U.S. where fashions for spring seem to flourish in the same pastel purples...your photo and that beautiful AZ desert are IN STYLE! Stunning, really! And a pleasure to visit...as always!
