Pileated Woodpecker ~ Looking for love?

                                                                                                                                  Photo by Joanne McKinnon

Every once in a while the gods look down upon us and bestow a gift.   Surely this was the case  when Joanne, wife of my old friend, Glenn MacKinnon, shot this photo in their backyard, in Bracebridge, Ontario.   What a remarkable and delightful photograph of a real Pileated Woodpecker, juxtaposed with a handmade, wooden look-alike that Glenn and Joanne picked up at the Cranberry Festival in Bala, Ontario.   The wooden woodpecker is the work of a craftsman from the Wahta Mohawk Territory in Muskoka, Ontario.   Perhaps is was simply a chance encounter or maybe a moment of outdoorsy predestination, but Joanne will have an image to treasure and enjoy for a long time to come.   I've seen some of Joanne's other photos and she has a talent with a camera.   You go, girl!
