With the Olympics right around the corner, it only seemed fitting that I should channel my inner gymnast while taking pictures on my deck this past weekend.
I wanted to photograph a Red-bellied Woodpecker from a slightly different vantage point, which required some stretching and balancing and leaning over the deck rail – all the while hoping that my balancing act wouldn’t turn into a tumbling routine!
Now, to say that I’m less than limber would be an understatement, so my session was short-lived, but I did manage to fire off a handful off shots (and just to be literal, I’ll include five!) of this handsome fellow.
Had any judges been watching, I’m sure I would have been docked for my poor form and sub-par coordination; but one thing’s for sure – this guy’s looks alone should warrant him a perfect score.
