Macomb, Michigan, USA
This was taken on the last day of last year, when temperatures were on a rollercoaster and sun and rain chased each other. After a thunderstorm, the sun came out, and the lens started fogging up, creating this dramatic but beautiful portrait of a Red-bellied Woodpecker.
Category 8: Potpourri
Species: Red-bellied Woodpecker
How can I vote if I don’t have a facebook account?
Hi John, Click the “vote” button on the image page to vote for a photo. Social media account should not be part of the voting process. The button may say “you like this” or “you voted for this” – either way it means your vote is counted.
Thank you for the reply, when I clicked on the vote button a window would open for facebook. I thought I had to have a facebook account before my vote would count, Thanks again, I will be voting more often now that I know.
Such a beauty! Love this photo!
I love all of these. What camera do you use?
Always the best bird photos
I love this photo! Beautiful!
