This photo is dedicated to my dear Sunshine Sista, Tina Moreau. Tina's daughter is working on a covid19 unit and has been using Tina's only computer. That is why Tina has been away from Flickr for the past 2-3 weeks. I know that many of you, like me, have been worried about Tina. She was able to let me know today that she is okay and asked me to get the word out to her other Flickr friends that she is okay and misses them very much.

About this photo: I was excited to view this male Pileated Woodpecker displaying courtship behavior two days ago. I live in an area where I see Pileated Woodpeckers on a regular basis. I have delighted in watching parent birds bring their fledglings to the suet feeders. However, this was the first time that I witnessed a male displaying courtship behavior. It was unusual to see a Pileated on the ground, but he danced in the leaves and then struck this pose low on a tree.

A light hearted look at my walk with Marnie this morning. No man made road blocks (yet) to stop us taking our daily exercise, but these bullocks certainly impeded our progress down this path, at least. They do have that habit of staring at you, don't they? We chose another path back home.

Processed in Topaz Studio with a beautiful texture from Lenabem-Anna - in this case, a double dose. Thanks Anna !

As always, thanks very much for taking a look and for your encouragement. I do hope you're all well and as happy as can be expected in these trying times.

{I would like to thank everyone who helped this picture reach Explore on 8th April 2020. It's always a bit of a thrill - especially now !]

Bottle Gentian plants tend to lean over as if under too much weight from the flower cluster, though the cluster tends to stay erect (decumbant). Bottle Gentian is pollinated almost exclusively by bumble bees because they are one of the few insects strong enough to pry open the closed flowers. Flowers are 1 to 1½ inches long, tubular with pleats between each of the 5 fused petals; the 5 lobes overlap and have tiny fringe or teeth around the tip. They never open and resemble large buds. Color can vary greatly but is typically blue to purplish, occasionally pink or white. A cluster of flowers sits at the top of the main stem. Some plants have additional small clusters arising from the leaf axils in the upper part of the plant. www.minnesotawildflowers.info/flower/bottle-gentian
