Pileated Woodpecker

This is what we commonly refer to as the Red-Headed Pileated Woodpecker or if you are old enough as “Woody Woodpecker.” 

According to the Canadian Wildlife Federation, “At an average 18″ in length, the pileated is the largest woodpecker in Canada. These colossal birds, with their striking red crest and resemblance to prehistoric pterodactyls in flight, are thought to be the inspiration for the once popular cartoon Woody the Woodpecker. As Woody had his loud laugh, pileated woodpeckers also make noise to match their size. Their drumming, reminiscent of construction machinery, can be heard up to a kilometre away.”

Autumn Bronze

Autumn Bronze

The province of Manitoba is known for having four distinct seasons although some are longer than others. This is a photograph I took in autumn off the shores of Lake Winnipeg. The bronze, yellow and orange leaves were softly falling to the ground in a musical rhythm of blissful joy. It was an incredible experience with the beautiful blue sky in the background.

In Between

In Between

The Canada Goose is between two tree trunks. He is heading towards the water. In the background, you can see another goose rising up out of the green algae water.

It was taken at St. Vital Park in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada and as the geese are back now, it will be a common sight again.

Sundown Time

These oak trees are the most perfect element in the beautiful autumn sky behind them. This photograph was taken at Assiniboine Park near the previous Conservatory in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. The seasons continue to change and with it comes renewed hope as we enter Spring.

Happenstance

Happenstance

I was just walking along in a park when I looked down and saw the beautiful arrangement of an oak leaf and acorns on the pathway. It was as if someone had intentionally put it there to be just in perfect balance and harmony. It is nature against a man-made backdrop. “From the beginning seed of a small acorn, will grow a magnificent oak tree which started out with humble beginnings with dreams and aspirations of greatness.” Quote by Mary Mikawoz.

Night Hues

I was trying to get an effect with the camera. I have much better shots of the moon that you can check out at my portfolio on Fine Art America. What I like about this photo is the mysterious nature of the full moon amidst the blue hues of the night sky and the trees.

Dragonfly On Tree

This is a beautiful dragonfly on a birch tree. I love dragonflies because they are beautiful as they hover and fly around and they eat mosquitoes too.

According to Wikipedia, “Fossils of very large dragonfly ancestors in the Protodonata are found from 325 million years ago (Mya) in Upper Carboniferous rocks; these had wingspans up to about 750 mm (30 in). There are about 3,000 extant species. Most are tropical, with fewer species in temperate regions. Loss of wetland habitat threatens dragonfly populations around the world.”

Dancing Sky

It is as if the clouds are dancing or brilliant white fireworks are going off in the sky. I love the movement in the clouds.

ET Face in Tree

I like to look at things and possibly see things that might be special.  This is a photo of a tree with moss on it.  The part that is interesting to me is that there seems to be a face, an ET face, protruding from the tree.  I see the forehead, eyes, nose, mouth and throat.  Can you see it?

Thank you for liking, commenting and/or sharing.  Mary
