Mr Woodpecker

Mr.Woodpecker showed up again today!

and…. I had my camera within reach.
Then Bibi roamed around in front of the kitchenwindow
and immediately Mr Woodpecker was out of sight.

Another bite

Not easy

It is absolutely not easy for the blackbirds to pick the last apples from the tree.
Lost of acrobatic flights are needed for the final treat.
For me as well…not so easy to capture the acrobatic flights, without too much blur.

He is just a round fluff ball.

This morning a beautiful turtledove came along, to see in if there was a little snack to find.
I grabbed my camera and was able to get him in my camera.
When I wanted to have a look at the photos….(GRRRRRRR!!10 times)
No memorystick in my camera!

Then later to my surprise a woodpecker came to see if there was something in the peanut butter jar!
Whaauw! Mr Woodpecker himself!
Such a beauty, such a surprise!
And how he almost disappeared in the jar…trying to reach the bottom.

I hope he comes along more often.

frosted apples

In between the freezing and the melting.
It looks as if the apples were dipped in a nice sugar glaze.

Apple snack

The apples in my neighbors garden are still hanging on a tree.
They were lovely apples I think, (maybe a bit too overripe now)

The blackbird thinks too they are yummy!

A visit from the squirrel!
That does not happen everyday,
or every week,
even not every year anymore.
It happened in the past…some years ago almost everyday in autumn and wintertime,
but not these days.
Since some trees were removed, the squirrels moved home and since than no more squirrels.

So great was my surprise that a squirrel was looking for a little something on my feeding table.
He even looked in the peanut butter jar.
With my phone within reach I took some photos.
Sadly enough I had not my tele nearby.
Anyway... a photo is better than no photo's at all.

Release 'the doves' in 2014

I have been working on a new painting during the last days of 2013
After a period of 5 years of almost not painting.
One reason was my back pain, which caused me not to be able.
The other reason is that I am searching for a new way of expressing myself with colors and paint.
I do not think I found it, its an ongoing process.
Yet it is a fresh start and from that, maybe will come more.

The title of the painting is 'Release the doves'

Release the doves in 2014!
