Woodpecker friend at my campsite.

I believe it's a hairy woodpecker (Dryobates villosus).

This was my first attempt at a Milky Way shot and I had no idea how to process it. It's really hard not to overdo it. I especially wanted to avoid over-brightening, but as a result it can be a little hard to see.

It *feels* about right, in that it brings me back to the moment and feels genuine, which is about all I can ask for.

Visited the Teos archaeological site yesterday. It's minimally developed, but quite fun to explore. It's also covered in wildflowers right now and full of impressive old olive trees.

@explorewilder I just checked out your website and it's really impressive! I love the design and how you've integrated journal entries and GPS tracks.

From last summer: a sleepy owl watching as I ate lunch at a picnic table under its tree.

I'm really fond of flickers. Here's a cute one resting on a branch last spring.
