One Determined Woodpecker

That first photo is a humorous reminder as to how I often feel towards trying to maintain focus on Fridays. This little guy is a male hairy woodpecker in Richmond, VA that I ran across in my image archives. He was a constant visitor to the yard, attending to the suet feeders hanging from the trees. This day he took a keen interest in understanding just how my rose bush bamboo stake was for insect hunting.
