PILEATED WOODPECKER, GREEN, MICHIGAN, MAY 29, 2014
Pentax 55-300 at 300mm
1/160 sec. f8
This woodpecker lives around our cabin but is more often heard than seen. The odd vertical striations in the background (better seen when the photo is clicked to larger size) apparently come from shooting through a double-pane window at an angle. Though the photo thus is flawed, I'm happy with the result. It was a quick and lucky grabshot without time to think.
