pileated woodpecker (dryocopus pileatus)
canon 10d @ 800 iso
canon 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6
WOW! That's different! Great shot!
Great detail at such high speeds... what sort of film were you using?
oh my! what a rare moment.
I love those big guys. I would see one of them up a tree eevry now and then as a kid. They make a ton of noise too.
not film, TBP. but anyway it was a shutter speed around 500 i think and iso 800 on the 10d
looks like piano keys on the wing...
I noticed the piano keys on the woodpecker's wing too! I've never seen one of these birds in person. . . this picture is just awesome.
My husband turned me on to your site last night, and I was so mesmerized by your photos I had to look at every single one. Just beautiful. I look forward to checking in every day.
What an amazing capture. It looks like you panned slightly to get the woodpecker in focus while it was flying.
amazing. not only the bird was perfectly captured in movement, but also the idea of precision of its flight through the labirynth of branches of the tree.
Good eye. I never noticed the first time.
Oh, its Woody Van Cliburn I see! Imagine all those birders who've wanted to get exactly that shot. What a beauty.
Matt -- my first love is birds -- I have NEVER seen one of this beautiful birds -- I have been all over the world in my time - but never had the good fortune to see one of these.... damn damn damn ... it thrills me so just to see one here ... thanks! a wonderful wonderful shot...
hey -- good luck at the exhibit! I'm excited for all of you!
