Woodpecker Lodge


I have to admit, this is one of my favourite pictures I have taken to date. It is of a sad dead tree, destined never to reach the heights of the surrounding trees. But, even in death it still provides for countless insects, fungi’s and organisms which in turn are feeding birds of many varieties. Most notably Woodpeckers which have also made it home.

I’m sure that in a few years time a storm or natural decay will cause it to fall and eventually it will be reabsorbed into the woodland floor. I hope it’s not to soon though, I would love to spend some time trying to capture some shots of its residents.
