Woody Woodpecker.

Recommended Posts

Had an unusual visitor to the garden today.  Never seen one here before, only in woodland.   It was a very dull grey day and so I had to use ISO 3200.  Consequently the quality is not what it might otherwise be.  -  (100mm - 400mm Polly).

What do you call this bird, John? Pretty good considering the high ISO.

That's a good lesson to those of us that are nervous about straying beyond ISO of around 800! Lovely images.

It's a Greater Spotted Woodpecker CM, an adult female from what I can glean.

Thanks for the info on that John ... I only see them on the bird feeders in my garden ... will have to try spotting them in the trees now with the new lens ...  nicely caught there . I presume that you had the converter attached  too ....

I never seem to take it off Clicks.  Not necessarily a good thing because you lose the extra stop.  I should think about it where I have time but generally you see something and shoot.
