Red Headed Woodpecker

Suze and I visited Lake June-in-Winter Scrub Preserve State Park this morning. I was hunting the elusive Florida Scrub Jay, but failed. I did however, capture images of a Red Headed Wood Pecker, which is a first for me. I have seen them before but never obtained a good photograph. The bird was about 100 […]

The Writing Mood

I am a morning person. At least, after my two mugs of strong coffee. I am exhilarated, just literally filled with creative juices. Unfortunately, mornings are a difficult time to write currently.
