Red Belly/Top Shot

Red-bellied woodpecker

For those of you who wondered last week about the red-bellied woodpecker's name HERE, guess what! 

I saw the bird again this week and this time it let me capture a glimpse of...

tada!

its red belly.

I am linking to Madge's Weekly Top Shot.

Your technical skills are wonderful; the bird is terrific, too! Love the red belly and the fact that it is contentedly eating while you snap away. It's a wonderful capture. Would you mind if I used it as m y screen saver?
