Love the claw details. Our woodpeckers have a had time gripping the ring around our bird feeders... they are designed for the gripping tree trunks or branches. But they adapt. They rule the feeders.. even Blue Jays get out of their way.

I love this photo.... I finally learned how to take photos of the white birds.... I love egrets of all species.

Small break in the rain and humidity for a few hours today, and only had a few opportunities in the sun before thunderstorms started again. I'm currently after a shot of a mating pair of Orchard Orioles, but they're proving to be rather wiley. Instead, I got paid a visit from this Red-eyed Vireo, one of my favorite birds, who looks to have been eating something red :-)

Edit: I need to lighten this image up a bit. Original image came out too dark by about ~2 stops... I made a noob mistake of not checking my setting before I shot, and the camera was set at ISO 800, when it should have been 3200 :oops: The photo as it is here is bumped by about 1.75 stops. Guess we'll see how "invariant" the 5D4 sensor can be.

Edit #2: Lightened the photo.. much better!

Thanks Mike. Don't know if it's the actual feathering/sheen on this particular bird but detail doesn't resolve so well even with the Canon?
