Every year I am tasked by my supervisor “Ericka my Wife”, to get a photo worthy of the Burning Christmas card.. I have the whole year to do this. Of course I alway wait till the end of the year to find or attempt to find the right shot.. usually looking for snow or red berries is nice. On this particular phot a mentor and great friend of mine “Emil” were at a different location taken photos together. He recommended this other place for a rare warbler that has been seen several days in a row.. The location was real close. I haven’t been to this new location before and Emil was more than willing to show me the area. As we both pulled into the parking lot, I noticed a beautiful red berried tree right off the main path. I know I was there for a rare to area Warbler, but could not pass up the opportunity for a Berry shot. I was rewarded when this Red-headed Woodpecker showed up and gave me my Burning Christmas card photo..
My favorite shot of yours in 2022. A winner in every way. You picked the right photo for your Christmas Card.
Thank you Emil, This photo would have never taken place if not for you and your willingness to help others.
Excellent sharpness and color.
