Houndstooth Scarf and a Wild Surprise

My mom recently sent me a couple of neat scarves (and one for hubby). I got this houndstooth number and a leopard one; hubby got a Blackwatch tartan scarf (but I might wear it too).

I wore my scarf with a bright pink sweater I picked up from a clothing exchange.

Halfway through my photo shoot, I heard a strange rat-a-tat-tat.

I looked up and across the street, hammering on a cell tower, was a woodpecker!

What a beauty. I believe this guy (or gal) is a pileated woodpecker.

I love eyeing wildlife–especially in the city. It’s amazing how many neat animals drop by. From rabbits to crows, they’re all so fun to watch. I’ve even seen raccoons. Hubby’s even┬áseen a full-grown buck and two coyotes (we live near a greenbelt). I admire all the species who work hard to eke out an existence and raise their families.

After my nature experience, I picked up my purse–an amazing Susan Nicole number that I won in a raffle at the Walk for Farm Animals last fall–and headed off to work.
