For Sandy

You must go visit Sandy at Birds, Bees, Bugs and Blossoms! Click here . She recently did a beautiful sketch of a recent photo I took this week of the nuthatch and downy. Sandy is a talented artist as well as photographer and she has a beautiful view of the world through her eyes.

I dedicate today's Hairy Woodpecker to Sandy! Thank you Sandy!

Wow, thanks Shelley. Very kind words to read today. Made me smile.

And love that woodpecker!! Hope you're feeling better today.

Hope you are feeling better, Shelley.

That was neat of Sandy to sketch that picture you made. OF course, all of your pictures are 'sketch-able.'

Hugs,
Betsy

I'm still trying to catch up with my blog friends having returned from my trip to the sunny south and processing a card full of wedding pics.

I do hope you are improving each day and I really like this shot, excellent detail and composition as well as a very attractive subject!
