  2. The haiku certainly captures the woodpecker’s behaviour.

    • Thanks, Belinda. He was there for quite a while, so determined, that it gave me lots of opportunity to take a picture. If only he hadn’t moved round so much! I’m glad you liked the haiku effort. I’m new at it, but I liked trying it out.

  4. The viewing of the woodpecker turned out to be somewhat elusive at first. At first look, I took his red head as a flower. Great haiku!

  5. I hope the woodpecker with a tulip on his head, found what he is looking for. Good picture and a smart haiku.

  6. I find that the woodpeckers, of all the birds we have around us, are the least timid and/or afraid of human companionship. In fact, our woodpeckers peck on our door if their suet feeder is empty. This is a GREAT photo of “your” woodpecker, Anneli.

    • How do you like that tulip on his head? I never saw that until Jacqui mentioned that she thought the bird was behind the tulip. The tulip IS his head. Had to laugh at your woodpeckers knocking on the door when the feeder is empty.
