A photograph a day from the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont
Lovely photo, Andree! Michael's poem has captured the joy of the feast.IO see it's 16 degrees up your way. Hope your safely tucked in for the night.
Andree IM'd me and said..."Hey! I've got this darn woodpecker raiding the feeder and tossing sunflower seeds EVERYWHERE!"That was how it began....
I don't know if the free lunch makes the wodpeckers laugh but this sure brought a smile to my face.Thank you.
What an awesome photo... and a wonderful poem. Made me smile. Guess I can't complain about 19 degrees here. What happened to Spring?
Great picture today Andree thanks!I apologise for this "mass comment" but I could you with your help today over at South Shields Daily Photo. Help promote the rights of photographers!
I love the photograph, Andree. I have so many birds at The Swamp that I have yet to learn names for, but one of the woodpeckers is the Pileated Woodpecker. He's too fast for my lens to capture properly, but I'm still trying. Michael's poem reminds me of the Opportunistic black birds (whose name I do not know yet) who swoop down to catch the bread crumbs nearly as soon as they hit the ground!
How terribly cute!
Love the image and the poem definitely captures the mindset.
I wonder if woodpeckers tell their buddies about the place where they get a free lunch, or do they keep it to themselves? Great photo and poem.
Wackily great!laughter lines
Wonderful post, I'm sure they like a free meal every day.
Love it - free lunch is not a bad thing - charming photo!
What a great photo. I feel like laughing at the feathered fellow's enjoyment of his feast!
yes, the antics of birds at the feeder are worthy of many laughs! what a great photo too!
Oh yes, the photo and poem bring out the laughs in all of us.
What a gorgeous photo. I laugh at these woodpeckers eating seeds when they are generally meat eaters.
Nice pecker. As the British say, keep your pecker up. (It means stay cheerful as a bird)
This might well be what's on the woodpecker's mind when finding his free dinner!Lovely.
replying to your comment on my blog about haigahaiga is basically a combination of art and poetry - traditionally the art would be simple brush strokes and the poetry would be haiku.What you've got here is certainly akin to haiga, but I'd hesitate to class it as such (mine isn't either in the traditional sense)you mention "tanga" and I'm not sure if this was a typo and you meant "tanka". Like haiku, tanka is NOT a syllabic form of verse, despite years of it being misrepresented as such among English-language teachers and others.
woodpeckers are notcommon here in Southern Calbut I laughed at yourphoto and fun verse!Thanks so much for sharing thiscollaboration ;--)Hugs and blessings,
This fellow knows a good thing when he sees it! He must be such fun to watch! Loved your poem. Laughter in the cold!
reminds me of woody woodpecker's laugh!
Terrific collaboration! Peace, JP/deb
