Wordless Wednesday-Understanding the Art of Concentration

By
Real Estate Agent with Integrity Real Estate Group

Woodpecker Waiting For Dinner

Though his big cousin Woody Woodpecker might be more recognizable with his big red head this Downy Woodpecker knows the art of concentration. In a world where we always seem to be trying to multi-task concentrating on getting one thing done and done well should still be foremost on our mind.  This guy's concentration will lead to a meal.  What will your concentration lead to?

Really nice picture Cindy! I've heard a woodpecker in my neighborhood but have had a hard time photographing him. Great shot.

Cindy ~ Concentration can be easily swayed when multi tasking but the focus like the woodpecker is for the end result whatever it may be.

Bill-I've had the pleasure of being in your neck of the world for vacation.  It is beautiful and does have plenty of wildlife.  Glad concentrating has a positive benefit for you.

Mike-it helps when they are concentrating and not moving.  Tried to catch a "woody" a few weeks ago without success.

Frank and Karen-it is easy to get distracted.  One phone call can send us scurrying in another direction. Have a great weekend.

Barbara-Jo-he knows instinctively he needs to get to those pesky little bugs under the bark.  The rest of us might struggle a bit to figure out what it is we need.

What a great shot!  I have never SEEN a woodpecker, though one a few years back chose my roof to announce it's presence.  Apparently, it's part of the mating ritual.  Bang on the loudest thing you can find.  Sadly, our roof did the trick.

Chris Ann-I had one that liked the railing on my balcony one year.  Drove the cat nuts as he would sit there for a long time pecking away at the metal railing.  That's when I learned about the mating ritual as well.
