Another in my Red Breasted Sapsucker series. I was fortunate to get a portrait shot of this elusive little Woodpecker amidst all the new holes it had drilled.

Thanks for stopping by.

Beautiful close up, Stan. All those holes he'd driven into the tree and the sap leaking - and then the firm look into the camera make this picture.
