You've taken on a big load Archibald. Entomology and ornithology cover a vast number of wildlife species. To be interested in both gives a person so many photo opportunities. :-) Have fun and enjoy.

Thanks for the remark, Mike! It is a lot of fun.

Nice shot, love the look on the face of the bird in the background.

Thanks.

I have them nesting in my back yard. They are really common around south and central Florida.

I guess we can't have everything in our own back yard... Thankfully I have a couple other things.

Hey Jeff..... I’d trade all of my Red-bellied Woodpeckers from in and around my place for just one of those beautiful moose you seem to have no trouble finding. :-D If I did have one I’d probably be to much of a “fraidy cat” to get as close to him as you do. ;-)a
