Pileated Woodpecker is working over my apples! Well, I'd much rather feed them, and besides, I can't reach those tree-top apples anyway!
He came back later, and I was able to get a little closer. Here, he is hanging onto a lower branch and an upper branch. He kept pecking at the apples, and they kept moving around, so he wasn't getting very far! But he is persistent!
Awe enables us to perceive in the world intimations of the divine, to sense in small things the beginning of infinite significance, to sense the ultimate in the common and simple, to feel in the rush of the passing the stillness of the eternal.
