Outdoor Wednesday

Wednesday Hodge Podge is 
taking a break so today I am joining 

 Its been a few years since I've joined Susan
for this meme but it is always enjoyable
to share scenes of nature with friends
who may live in other areas.  

This photo of Red Headed Woodpeckers was taken several 
years ago...they used to come back every year to 
our area and bring their young to our feeder
before going off somewhere warmer for the 
winter months...I'm not sure why we no longer see
this Bee has already loaded quite a lot of pollen
on his body as you can see by the pockets
of yellow on his hind quarters....

Finally, if you'd like to post photos from your area 
of the outdoors, join Outdoor Wednesday by

  1. Enjoyed your photos. Enjoy the rest of your week!

  2. Beautiful blog post today! I can't say I'm a fan of woodpeckers because they gave us absolute fits about 25 years ago in another house in another city. We spent lots of $$ to deal with them in a variety of ways. But the kind we had were not anywhere as pretty as the ones you have pictured. (maybe yours were "the good guys" - smile!) Also did not know we could see the amount of pollen a bee has collected by what's on their hind legs. Very interesting! Thanks for such a lovely post today!

  3. Wonderful pictures. Love the bee close up.

    God bless.

  4. Great photos! Love the shot of the bee!

  5. love the outdoor pics.......esp the bee............
