I spent July 13 and July 15 photographing three adult Lewis' Woodpeckers in Sweet Grass County, Montana. All three are actively feeding the young in the cavity, bringing in assorted berries, ants, insects, butterflies and what look like embryonic birds. The field guides do not mention that they predate nests. However, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology has a terrific description of this fascinating bird, "The Lewis's Woodpecker might have woodpecker in its name, but it forages like a flycatcher and flies like a crow. It has a color palette all its own, with a pink belly, gray collar, and dark green back unlike any other member of its family. From bare branches and posts, it grabs insects in midair, flying with slow and deep wingbeats. It calls open pine forests, woodlands, and burned forests home, but it often wanders around nomadically outside of the breeding season in search of nuts. #Lewis’ Woodpecker #Melanerpeslewis #cavity #nest #feeding #bird #birds #birdphotography #birding #audubon #canon #canonusa #nanpapix #nature #naturephotography #mothernature #motherearth #wildlifephotographer

The Gulf Fritillary or #Passionbutterfly (Agraulis vanillae) is a bright orange #butterfly of the family Nymphalidae and subfamily Heliconiinae. Like their cousins #Heliconius, they also have a chemical defensive mechanism against predators, especially against #birds. These #butterflies have specialized glands located on their abdomens, which release a distinct odor when the butterflies sense danger or are suddenly disturbed, warning birds that that possible prey is not particularly tasty.

망중한 바쁜 가운데 한가로움. 즉 바쁨 속에서 잠깐 얻어낸 짬을 가리킴. 바쁠수록 쉬어가라는 말도 있죠. 아무리 바쁘다 해도 틈틈이 쉬어가면서 일을 해야 능률이 오르니까요. . . . #망중한 #효도관광 4시반 기상 ㅡㅡ #빡심 꺽지 . . . , #photography #photographer #wildlifephotographer #wildlifephotography #picture #photo #dailyphoto #wildlife #wild #travel #traveler #여행 #sony #A7m2 #RX100m4 #숲 #forest #flower #연남동 #연트럴파크 #cafe #제주 #제주도 #멍스타그램 #댕댕이 #낚시 #fishing
