When Ann and I were out getting photos for that last post, I came up on a Ladder-backed Woodpecker, hanging beneath a branch pecking away. I decided to punch the video button on the camera and record it. Since this is my first attempt at embedding a video in a post, I need you to check it out and see if you can view it properly.
Here it is. It may not be great, but it is all mine.
For best view, watch it on my blog proper, not from this e-mail.
I so much enjoy your blog. I’d like to talk with you about speaking to a San Angelo group I’m in about your experience with blogging. Please email me and I’ll send you my phone number.
Thanks Laurel. I have sent you the e-mail. Will be interested in what you have in mind.
It’s wonderful, Bob. Hope you do more.
Thanks, Cindy. I will try to do more, and mix them in with my usual still photos. 🙂
It worked great for me. Nice shooting. 🙂
Thanks, Alison. I consider it a practice run. Now I can try to get some more better ones. 🙂
your clarity is fabulous..I like the angle you shot it at..nature in the real making..good job…
Thanks very much, Syl.
Great video, Bob! It’s really good to see the bird ‘in action’ like this, and to hear it drumming. It makes you realise how quickly woodpeckers move – and the way they use their tail for stability. I haven’t found the video button on my camera yet! 🙂
Keep looking, Jo, it must be there somewhere. 🙂
Thanks for the comment. I am anxious to try to make another video. 🙂
Not an angle that we usually shoot, yet, why not , as that if often how we see them. I like seeing the action and behaviours so hope you do this more often. Thanks for sharing again, Bob.
Great video, Bob.
Thanks, Dave. Not bad for my first try. 🙂
What a fun video, Bob! That is quite a hole he is excavating!
Thanks, Lynda. It was just an experiment to see if I could really make and publish videos. I may be hooked now, so watch for more in the future. 🙂
I will! 🙂
You must have gotten tired of standing on your head shooting an upside down video, Bob. 🙂
Yeah, I still have a headache. 🙂 Thanks for the comment, Toby.
Thanks so much, Shannon. You know by now that I couldn’t have done it without you help. I owe you, big time. 🙂
