The Smokies are beautiful this time of year. I just live an hr away and visit very often. We havent taken the A/S up yet, that will have to wait for the May Rally. Love the pictures! Hope you didnt have to drive in those terrible storms we had last night.

Rodney, as always, your photos do not disappoint. Great wildlife, and the ridge skyline is fabulous. I love how you've captured the light streaming through the clouds. That little pileated woodpecker, how did you sneak up on him? I've found them to be elusive little birds.

Thanks for the kind words everyone . It is always fun to share some images with people who appreciate nature.

I can't begin to tell you the epic that getting a decent image of a pileated has been. At the end of things, while I was laying in wait for bear (to no avail) that bird flew right up and went about its business with no concern about me at all. The lighting was kind of tough, but other than that when the time came the photography was straight forward.

As the saying goes . . .

So Rodney, you were loaded for bear, but a bird in the lens turned out to be worth more than two bears in the woods . . . uh, err, or something like that.

I think the pileated was worth the wait.

COOL. Thanks!

He's such a busy little bird. Thank goodness there are still a few around.

One of his relatives visited my feeder a few days back - didn't have a chance to get his picture though.

I was lucky enough to backpack the length of the AT that runs through the Smoky Mountain National Park a few years back - BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY!!!

Make sure you get up to Clingman's Dome - the view is spectacular!

We are fortunate enough to have several pairs of Pileateds nesting around our lake. Did you know that the Wood Duck and the Pileated Woodpecker have a simbiotic relationship? The wood pecker created the holes in the trees for the ducks to nest in. When the woodpeckers declined, so did the wood ducks until concerned citizens started making nesting boxes for them.

We live in a natural bird sanctuary. In the summer we have the Tanangers, orioles, warblers, eagles, and the name sake of our home, the Cooper's Hawk, along with many others.

Here is a photo of our stay in Piegon Forge at claybroughs (sp) Campground. It's one of the nicer ones but should give a perspective of how cramped things are in most of the resorts. The next shot speaks for it'self. I hope the photo's make it, never had much luck on the first try.

Nothing quite like an Airstream in your rear view mirror, is there?
