That's a beauty of a shot, Mike.

Thanks Levina! I love it when I somehow manage to nail to the focus. :-) It certainly doesn't happen on every shot.

I owned the V1 of the Tamron, and it was just inconsistent, even after having sent it back to Tamron for a firmware update.

Sold it for $750 and put that down on the Canon 100-400 II. I also rented the V1 of the 100-400 which was okay, and the old sigma 150-500... that thing was a tank, seemed sharper than the Tamron, but just way too bulky/weight for all day use.

I think you should consider the 100-400 II + crop body OR go with a nikon crop + 500pf OR Canon + 400 DOII. All three of these setups are the sweet spot for all day portability/handheld work.

Thank you very much Chris. I do have a 100-400 II and love it. I run it on my 7DII. I also have a 400 DOII that stays permanently on my 1DXII with a 1.4TC. These two set ups go with me on most all my photo excursions. I need another lens, like I need a whole in my head. However, I've wanted the Tamron or the Sigma Contemporary 100-600 because it would give me more horsepower, and the price is reasonable for the great results I see so many folks getting. I go back and forth as to whether to buy one or not.

Wonderful photo Mike, I'm amazed as to how many different Woodpeckers you get in the USA.

In the UK we have 3. The Lesser Spotted (similar to your Downy but smaller) is so rare you would be lucky to see one every 10 years. The Great Spotted which is very common and the Green.

Thank you very much, Paul. We do have quite a variety of woodpeckers out here, but you have a tremendous variety of bird species in your neck of the woods. I'm always amazed (and a bit jealous :-)) at photos you post up.

The Hawfinch is a massive finch and are between 15-18cm in height.
They have huge heads which are full of muscle to operate its massive bill.

The Hawfinch is able to exert a massive 60kg of force, enough to crack open Cherry stones!
