One new photograph, almost every day of the year

2016—Hoarding

Friday morning I returned to Antelope Community Park with my camera and Mady, too.  That’s usually an untenable combination but I hooked Mady to the belt of my fanny pack so she couldn’t pull on my arm. I managed without incident to traverse the lumpy, uneven terrain where they’ve plowed up the weeds and left furrows of dirt around the open spaces away from the trails.  I wanted to get closer to the oak stumps where the acorn woodpeckers are caching their winter stash of nuts but with Mady attached, I wasn’t able to get quite as close as I got the day before.  The acorn woodpeckers are fun to watch and as is visible in the third shot, they hoard a lot of nuts!
