Red-naped Sapsucker, 8x10 on Maple Wood
The Red-naped Sapsucker, like other woodpeckers, has a large, sharp bill for excavating cavities and drilling wood for insects. However, as the name implies, these birds suck sap by making unique patterns of sap wells in trees. Look for squares or rectangles of numerous rows of tiny holes in aspens, cottonwoods, willows or pines. You might even see hummingbirds drinking from these holes as well! This is a digitally modified photograph so that the image looks like a painting. I often work in this medium, which takes a lot of time and experimentation, and I love it for certain images. It creates an artsy and unique look. This is printed on maple wood, making the print even more artistic with striations of the wood grain showing through the image. Ready to hang and shipping included in price.
