This past December this Pileated Woodpecker was searching for insects along a leaning tree trunk that was low enough for a great photo opportunity. In addition to a good look at the Woodpecker, I very much like the habitat that surrounds him in the picture – the tree bark with mosses and lichens, a few leaves of the past season and in the lower right corner the pattern of Yellow-bellied Sapsucker holes. This picture was taken while a cloud covered the sun, giving nicely subdued colors. A moment later the sun came out and the pictures are nice but not so softly colored.

Beautiful picture and interesting information. I really like the composition that includes elements of the habitat: it makes you feel as if you are there.
