I know, the setting & the light both suck, but it's just not possible for me to pass up a shot of one of these beauties. They are hard to come by in our neck-o-the-woods. This was a total surprise sighting!

Can't see much wrong with that. Nice sharp shot.
Don't under rate your picture.

Really nice photos. There's a softness and a cleanness about these.
Your technique shows quality output.
Very nice indeed

Thank you Paul. Woodpeckers are pretty neat critters, except for folks who have houses and cabins up in the foothills where woodpeckers are abundant.
I'm told they can do some pretty major destruction to these dwellings. There are numerous acorn woodpeckers within 10 minutes of my house, but I've never seen any in my neighborhood.

That's a lot of work for a little bird to do.
