Earlier this year, I had fun watching a Red-bellied Woodpecker eat berries off a tree. We often think of woodpeckers as eating only the insects and other bugs they can get to by drilling a tree trunk. But they also eat other types of food, including nuts and berries.
Scott Simmons, based in Florida, is a lover of nature, landscape, and wildlife photography. Scott became interested in photography in 2001 when he was given his first SLR camera. When he acquired a telephoto lens, he became progressively more interested in birds and other wildlife. Scott enjoys learning about bird habitats and behavior, striving always to take images that are both beautiful and interpretive. Scott believes photography is a great vehicle to help others to appreciate the wonder for the stuff of earth.
