This woodpecker is a great poser. He comes to the feeders every day for a snack. The branch he is standing on has holes drilled into the sides that I fill with a special suit that I make. The holes are on the side of the branch so that they are not visible to the camera.

Excellent Capture and Post Jim. A FULL 600mm capture. That lens does nice work. I'm sure Topaz had a final say as well. Beautiful. Best of Luck in the Contest and thanks for sharing.

@digicam Thank you Ed, I have been very happy with this lens. Even at 600mm I get a crisp image. You're right, I did get a little help from Topaz Studio 2.
