High in the Pecking Order


As I was getting in my car at my in-laws house, this Redheaded Woodpecker slashed by.  He zoomed up to the top of this damaged tree across the street and got to work looking for insects.  Unfortunately, he was pretty far away and was working on the opposite side of the tree out of my line of site.  But slowly I worked my way around to capture this shot.
