FEMALE DOWNY WOODPECKER, GREEN, MICHIGAN, MAY 25, 2013
Pentax F* 300mm f4.5
1/750 sec. f8
The woods behind our cabin's back yard echoes all day with the rat-tat-tat of woodpeckers, but this was the first such bird to come in close enough to have its portrait taken. I used the older K20D camera for this shot, and it still yields excellent image quality despite heavy cropping.
