These two Northern Flickers visited our deck during our recent snowstorm. This shot, to me, looks as if the male is sort of bowing & saying to the female, ‘I honor you’….

    it’s the whole composition of the piece and the clarity.. also.. they do look like they like posing for YOU> I think that is the secret to good nature shooting..it is the love from the photographer that translates the entire piece once you got the formula down.. xox

  • i honor you, my dear one…thank you…
