Downy woodpecker on the wisteria

I was inside the house today when there was some kind of knocking sound -- or maybe even the sound of a rocking rocking chair -- coming from the front porch. I slowly opened the door to peer outside and there on the wisteria was a downy woodpecker pecking away at a bug smorgasboard. I quietly retreated from the door, found my camera, and slipped back over to snap a photo of my visitor. What a beauty!
