I ❤ Woodpeckers



"The most wasted of all days is one without laughter."  ~E. E. Cummings

I took these early evening yesterday while sitting in the backyard.  I love the bokeh effect.  I used the iPad app PhotoToaster to add the white vignette and the soft white frame.  

Happy Tuesday everyone and happy blogging.

    1. Thank you Nora. I love that particular app and lately I find myself using it more than my PC editing programs. Have a great day. :)

  2. Beautiful shots, Cindy! The bokeh is so dreamy. Your edit really helps this red-bellied woodpecker stand out.

    1. Thank you. They can be destructive but I adore them too. I'm partial to the little Downy Woodpecker. Happy Tuesday.

  6. Hi my friend....you know that I am typing from afar....and that I am fussing with "autocorrect"......but I'm here and wanted to let you know that I always love looking at your photos. You are also very good at taking a great shot and making it even more appealing with your fantastic editing abilities.
    Sending you and your furry babies another hug.
    I will post more when I don't have to fight with autocorrect.
    :)))
    Love,
    Jackie
    (Seeeee... I had to correct. "Jackie"....it typed in "Hackie".... Shaking my head..... )

    1. Thank you Jackie. Autocorrect can be very frustrating. I'm always afraid I'll forget to proof read and send something out that I shouldn't. It has caused me many stressful moments. LOL! Hackie, that's funny.
      The fur babies send hugs and kisses.

      Hugs,
      Cindy

  8. Very nice woodpecker portraits! But these guys can do a lot of damage. For awhile we lived in a 2nd floor condo in Ft. Lauderdale and I think it was this same woodpecker (well, maybe one that looked like this one...) who pecked away at the top of a palm tree right by our window. Drove us nuts! Didn't do the tree much good, either! :)

    1. Thank you Lowell. I agree with you they can be destructive and cause a lot of damage. They have a tendency to peck on one particular tree in the back yard. It's a huge dead Pine tree, waiting for removal. Hopefully they'll leave the others alone. I hope your week is going well.
