I spotted this woodpecker couple in the front yard while doing chores. Of course I had to stop and watch them courting each other.
They didn't seem to care that I was right underneath, taking pictures. They jumped from branches to branches. I had a hard time focusing on them since they were in small sizes.
They had their rituals and their dances and time stood still to just stare at each other. They hung around this front yard tree for a long time. I was the one given up to go inside after a long hard day.
