About Project 365

Thanks for stopping by my blog! This is Year 2 of my Project365 blog. What is a Project 365? It's a photo challenge involving people from all over the world posting one photo per day throughout 2011. Some photographers choose themes, however for now my photos will be totally random. I will be shooting with my Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi-18-55mm, 75-300mm zoom and 100mm 2.8 macro lenses. I edit in iPhoto and Photoshop Elements 9. Not all photos are "perfect"; the purpose is to make photography an everyday event.

I am not a professional. Photography has always been a diversion of mine. I am a primary grade teacher and passionate tech. enthusiast. I consider myself an experienced amateur with LOTS to learn!

You will find links to other photographers in the sidebar- do check them out! I have also joined the Flickr EdTech 365/2011 Group, and you can click this link to view the entire pool. I will be posting my photos to their group pool, as well as here on my photo blog. I welcome your constructive criticism!


1. Photos are to be taken in 2011.
2. Post your own work only.
3. Images may be edited or unedited- your choice.
4. Keep your images, text, and comments appropriate for all ages.

Day 43- Tap, Tap, Tap...

This poplar is, sadly, riddled with bugs. Our friend, the pileated woodpecker has been tapping away on it for over a year now. Stepped outside and heard him foraging above. Used PSE9 to remove a nearby branch that detracted from the bird. Bugs, anyone?


  1. What a great catch. I've only seen one of these twice (once right outside my house). They are so majestic.

  2. How wonderful! My favorite bird I think. I love all of their various calls.

  3. Pretty amazing bird. I love the patterns on his neck and head.

  4. These are just so amazing. They stop me dead in my tracks when I spot one. Sorry for your tree but happy that the bird found lots of snacks.
