Silly Saturday ...

... photo in Extras!

Even though it was cold and windy again today (tis the season!) we went up to the Plainfield Rail Trail for a short walk.  It was too cold for a longer one.  

There's a certain part of the trail that we usually turn around that enables us to walk about a mile.  On the way back to the car I spotted this Yellow-bellied Sapsucker ... actually heard him first!  Luckily for me he moved to a more photographable tree right in front of us ... this never happens!  Then I simply had to wait until he was in the sun!  I took over 30 shots of him and was very pleased with this one.

When I returned home I sat on the back deck for a short time with my squirrels.  I knew they would come through for me for Silly Saturday! And I was right! Don't you just love his little teeth!?!

Speaking of Silly Saturday ... next week (December 4) is the hosted Silly Saturday in memory of Admirer.  And RavensRoost has kindly offered to host.  You can see her post on the challenges page here.
