Back to my favorite little guy!  Isn’t he sweet?  I wasn’t sure whether I wanted to leave the errant branch, but decided to keep it for now.  What do you think, should I take it out or leave it?   Also, look at those cute little claws!

  1. Hard to call on that little branch, there is a part of me that quiet likes it but would have to see it without. Woody is amazing though, fantastic capture, beautiful depth of field, colour. All in all, Beautiful.

  2. *quite even! Doh.

  3. Pretty bird and brilliant shot, Sally. Thank you for sharing

  4. Woodpeckers are so charming, as long they don’t pick your house…

  5. He’s beyond sweet, just gorgeous! It’s a treat for sore eyes (nightduty) to watch your photography. 🙂

  6. Lovely. The branch looks good compositionally

  7. I would definitely leave that branch in.. looks like it is beckoning to the little guy. 🙂

  8. A really excellent capture.

    (My vote: Keep the branch. It helps make the shot.)

  9. Been photographing birds in snowy Central Park today. A good day for woodpeckers, also cardinals. And one huge red-tailed hawk to finish with. Proportion of pics already junked? 60%! RH

    • Oh, that would be fun. I would say that over 60% of mine I don’t use as well.. they move so quick, so I find I have to get to know their routines… ha, and then can anticipate a bit better. Have fun editing~!!

So I’ve been drawing pictures from magazines for years: Vogue, Elle, Marie Claire, Sports Illustrated. As a result I’ve accumulated a stack of sketchbooks on my bookshelf. I thought I would use this as a place to post the ones I like best. Hope you enjoy!
