Every morning my husband or I will get up and go out early to let out all the doggies. For over a week, I could hear the tapping of a woodpecker in the trees nearby. We are surrounded by trees and finally, I spotted him on a branch. I ran in right away and grabbed the camera. It was all ready I zoomed in on him sitting there with his head bobbing away while he searched for breakfast. He flew away before I could take the picture.
For the rest of that day we could hear him but he didn't come and stay long enough for us to take his picture. He was camera shy.
Finally, one morning I went out with camera in hand and was able to catch one shot. The one and only that he let us get. Hubby, my son and I tried again a few times but it was effortless. He allowed us this one picture.I could hear him busy at work for a few mornings after that. Then he was gone. I have not heard him since. I miss his tap, tap, tapping and watching his little head bobbing back and forth. I miss chasing him down the street, camera in hand to get just one more shot. Alas, I must be happy with the one we captured before he moved on.
