In 2009, I was encouraged by my friends to give the 365 photo project a try. I love taking photos, and was excited about participating. The daily posts paint a brief picture of my year and open my eyes to the beauty around me. It is challenging to post a photo daily. I was successful in 2009 and 2010, but fell a few short in 2011. I'll be continuing my quest for daily photos in 2012 and look forward to sharing them here.
I took this photo out our kitchen window at lunchtime. This little woodpecker was enjoying his free meal at our suet feeder. We've had to move this feeder several times because the squirrels keep finding ways to get to it. At one point we had it hanging on a thin branch and the squirrels would hang upside down by their tail in order to reach it (see below). Now we have the feeder hanging off the overhang right outside our kitchen window. I'm glad the woodpecker has found it and I'm pretty sure we've now foiled the squirrels!
This photo was taken a few weeks ago before we moved the suet feeder!
