Hairy Woodpecker (Three Photographs)

This is either a downy or a hairy woodpecker and I am going with hairy. These birds can make a racket when pounding away, hard to believe how small they are given all the hammering and how fast they move around the tree. I don’t recall the first time I heard about the importance of eyes in photographs of people and animals (much the same admonitions apply to both), but I do know I think a lot about them and often edit eyes to make them more visible (only once in these three photographs – the photo where the head is turned away from the camera). In the second photograph, I could not help thinking that this little bird was getting just a little tired.
