Downy Woodpecker Heart

Who knew? I didn't know male downy woodpeckers have
a red heart on the back of their neck. Amazing.

    1. Hi Loree,
      They are cute, and skittish. They fly away at the least bit of movement.

  4. Maywyn, your photography is superb! And I had no idea the downy woodpecker had a heart on the back of his neck.
    Thank you for your comment on the ship painting. So far, so good, and now to make it come alive [I hope!].

    1. Hi Kathryn,
      I appreciate the way you explain with photo progress your painting processes. You are a talented artist as well.
      Thank you. I thought at first the heart might be a fluke, but looking on the Internet, the woodpecker's red shape is normal.

      Have a Fantastic week-end!
