Lighthouse Park II

As simple as this photograph of two woodpeckers first seems, it is the end result of some two dozen shots taken of this baby woodpecker watching and learning from it’s parent how to collect bugs from trees.
I took the photograph while walking through Lighthouse Park. The parent first appeared, then came the child from behind the tree. The child jumped around while the parent pecked away. Only two of the 20 plus shots taken came out as the rest either had one of the two out of focus or the parent’s red head lost in a blur of pecking motion. This experience certainly gave me a much better appreciation of bird photographers.
