Description

An “action” shot of the creeper as it remained motionless of the trunk of the tree. Of course while getting the scope and iPhone set up, the best chance was missed with the creeper camouflaged against the main trunk. After that it only showed up on the edge of the tree trunk with snow in the background. Whenever the creeper has been sighted, it goes down to the base of the tree just below in the photo. It seems to be after some sort of food, possibly spillage on the ground from the feeder or some insects. Unable to see due to banks of snow, but it repeats the process several times.
