She let me get so close that I kept waiting for her to take off. I heard footsteps of someone coming along the trail, they stopped. but she stayed. I was an arms length from her. I only had my cell phone today, so it wasn’t a big object in my hands.. I tried to coax her to look my way… I know.. asking too much .. too soon.. but the fact she didn’t take off till more people came up to where we were, thrilled me. When she took off, I followed suit. I took over 2 doz. pictures, most were just repetitions…
Happiness is .. being able to share a moment of quiet with another species. LOL I was quiet, she was busy eating.

I have changed over the years, I have accepted the changes that happened over the years of living and experiencing life challenges/opportunities. It wasn’t always easy, but living with the firm belief that God is always with me.. allows for a more open and adventurous journey. I’ve learned that I can be “still” .. I can allow new ideas and possibilities to infiltrate my thought process.
A year ago, I would not have sought a meaningful moment with a woodpecker (bird).. today, after weeks and months of spending time being closer to the “outdoor environment” in a personal way, (not driving by or through a park, but actually making the woodland part of my day/Being… I experienced the “high” of being accepted albeit limited, but never-the-less accepted at close range by a bird of the wild.

It is extraordinary that she let you get that close! She obviously feels safe in your presence (she’s a good judge of character 🙂 ). Fifty feet is as close as I’ve ever been to one of these.
believe me, I was so impressed with her. I was very grateful for all the years of doing tai chi, and moving meditations… I’ve not done so for awhile, that my body and movements kicked into very slow, and easy with such ease.. was only because I was so intent and focused on letting her know I just wanted to be closer to her.
What an amazing experience. It’s beautiful.
I am still smiling… thanks!
