Male Pileated Woodpecker on the Ground No. 1
My relative had just been mentioning her fears that some cut trees in the woods behind her house would result in fewer pileated woodpeckers, but I saw a few of them while I was there. Some in the still standing tree, but a closer view of this one on the ground, finding a meal in the downed timber.

Nature, animals, beauty have been a source of nourishment throughout my life. Photography allows me to capture, interpret, and share that world of wonder I see about me, and sometimes use what I capture as an inspiration to create something new, by incorporating other exposures, textures or brushwork.
I currently reside in Oregon, an environment rich in nature's graces. I have lived in California and New York, too, and everywhere there is a world of beauty around us, if we care to take the time and look for it.
