Maybe some day I will be able to visit Cuba.

Cool! Had to enlarge the photo to see the bird - he blends right in! (Or I really need to get my eyes checked....)

Reb said...

My first thought was "oookaay
", then it was like... "there it is!" Very lovely shot Leah, he does a wonderful job of blending into his background.

Leah J. Utas said...

Bag Lady, yes, he is tough to see there.

Reb, if I didn't know he was there I'd never find him. Thanks.

The bird does blend in, makes it a wonderful photo, you get a surprise if you look closely enough.

Leah J. Utas said...

Thanks so much, Messymimi.

I had to click on the enlargement (which I avoid doing because it takes a while to load) before I could find the bird, and even then it took me a bit. He's amazingly well camouflaged. Good shot.

He's a lovely critter. I always enlarge your photos. I know they're always worth the fuller view.

Leah J. Utas said...

Thank you, Mary Anne. He does blend in.

Hilary, thank you so much.

I'm still having a heck of a time seeing the woodpecker even after enlarging! I know it's definitely my eyes. How lucky you were to be in a gorgeous orchid garden!

Dawn said...

You have been to some amazing places. Good eye you have too:)

Hope you're weekend is going well...(sounds like we may get snow next week. Does that mean you will finish your book?;))

ladyfi said...

Wonderful - and so well camouflaged too!

Leah J. Utas said...

Redbush, it's on the branch about halfway. Look for the red.

Dawn, I am blessed to have travelled. Finished the rewrite the other day and ran off a hard copy for husband to read. Thanks for asking. I'm just deciding now which of my other manuscripts to tackle. Weekend's coming along nicely. You?

Ladyfi, thanks.
