Photo Challenge - Wood

The wooden river walk board walk at the River Park in Helena, AR.

James pruned the oak tree a couple years ago. This scar reminds me of an eye.

And here's the male of the woodpecker pair that's been hanging around my yard for the past couple of years. Do you see the pecan in his beak?

It's that time again and I'm afraid I let it slip up on me again. I've gone into old photo files to hunt for the above Wood shots for the new Photo Challenge. I hope to be in here early tomorrow to view all of the other challengers over at the Photo Challenge Blog.

I've been missing my blog and I'm trying my best to get my mind situated so that I can get back on the blog track. I miss my blog buds most of all.

Great shots of the woodpecker and the bridge. My favorite is the "eye" of the oak. Reminded me of a dream I had years ago about the "spirit of the oak" (it was the oak tree at the house where I grew up). Kind of eerie... like it's watching.

That boardwalk looks so inviting. You are right about the scar on that tree it does look like an eye. I wonder what it sees?
