Pic of the Day

Red-bellied Woodpecker, Melanerpes carolinus (female);Horsecove; Gurley, Alabama

     I caught this guy in my backyard this afternoon.  I have been shooting the female for a couple of days and finally got the male this afternoon.  I'll post those images as soon as I get them processed.  I have also got shots of male and female Downy Woodpeckers as well.  More to follow!

Just a note:  Notice the red tinged feathers on the belly between the birds feet.  This where the Red-bellied Woodpecker gets its name.

Nikon D800, Nikkor 500mm f4,  Exposure 1/80 sec. @ f7.1
