The natural world always finds a way to surprise and fascinate me! While David and the guys at the RV park were cutting fallen branches of a live oak tree, their saws revealed this beautiful sight—acorns stashed in a hollow.
What makes this image amazing is that woodpeckers push the acorns in through a hole in the bark not much bigger than a nickel. They obviously act as if they have far more food than they need because there’s no way for them to extract the acorns. Truth is, they do have an abundance of food. Acorns carpet the ground in Sacred Rocks Reserve‘s huge live oak grove.
Just think how happy we humans would be if we went through life acting as if there is always enough of what we need.
