Spring is a chaotic rapidly changing slideshow of color. Wildflowers, Rocks, Birds, new Leaves and flowering Trees are glorious eye candy along the trails. Nature always has surprises waiting for me to share via my lens. Yesterday’s surprise was the return of a favorite hiking partner, a male Red-Bellied Woodpecker. His vibrant red head glowed in the sunlight high above me. Before the drought of 2012 it was rare not to see one every day I hiked, sometimes on every trail across Hot Springs and North Mountains. This sighting was beautiful gift.
Love to ALL!
