Pic of the Day

Downy Woodpecker, Picoides pubescens
Horse Cove; Gurley, Alabama

     I was shooting from a blind this evening but for some reason there was little activity.  The only thing to show up was a nuthatch and this male Downy Woodpecker.  Though I sat for an hour with nothing to shoot I was really happy when this little guy showed up, and I am really excited with the results of the shoot.

Nikon D800, Nikkor 500mm f4 lens,  1/125th second @ f8, Natural Light

  1. I have to like this photo--a bird with my favorite colors, black and white with a touch of red! Really cool!
