I was driving home from Jasper Arkansas, on Tuesday, prior to the cold and rain, and I spotted a male Pileated Woodpecker determined to drill into the bark of a tree. There must have been ants or termites in the tree. He was so busy, I stopped the car up next to the tree and took a dozen shots with a Canon 7D and a Canon EF300L IS f/2.8 Lens.

Still 2 weeks away from the official start of autumn ! But a 64F this morning with N Breeze and a sunny and beautiful day, I trekked down to the Little Buffalo River and sat in the shade next to a patch of wildflowers next to the stream and photographed a few juvenile Hummingbirds on some recently emerging Great Blue Lobelia; from there, the day just got more beautiful !! I was then joined by an Eastern Wood PeeWee gleaning aquatic insects from over the flowing water and a beautiful Gulf Fritillary on a white blossom:

I spent about an hour watching this female Baltimore Oriole. She and her mate fed on ripe Mulberries for about 10 minutes, when, surprisingly, she began weaving a nest as he watched; I guess her instincts had taken over. These photos taken from 40′ in camouflage with a Canon 7D and a Canon EF300L f /2.8 IS with a Canon 1.4 TC – handheld. These photos taken a few weeks prior to my injuries and uploaded this past weekend, There are many photos and they can be enlarged by clicking on each one:

I took this photo yesterday morning from the northern Boston Mountains looking north-east toward the Ozarks of Arkansas and Missouri. The heralding of a hot day to come.
