Important: please keep your image under 700 pixels wide/high for in-line viewing, and please try to keep the FILE SIZE UNDER 300kb. Note that this includes photos hosted off-site (at Flickr, Photobucket, your own site, etc). Are you new to this thread? The general guidelines for these Thursday threads are right here. Remember: only one image each week!Well it's a few minutes past midnight here in Indiana so let's get this week's POTW thread started. We had more posts last week than the previous but still failed to reach triple digits. ASHTON KUCHER IS BEATING US! So post your photos and tell all your friends to post theirs too. I saw a lot of great photos last week, let's keep 'em comin'. And if there's a story or motivation behind your photo, tell us about it. And if there's not, tell us the unmotivating story about how that particular scene made its way in front of your lens. The weather is starting to cool down and the days are getting shorter so it makes it harder to get out and photograph as much as I'd like, but I was out for a couple hours this week trying to find some woodpeckers when I saw this guy. He was a little shy at first, but warmed up to me after a few minutes and posed on a log for me while he ate a nut. Not my masterpiece, but if I get at least one shot a week that I'm not ashamed to post here, then it's a success.
