Woodpecker

This is the only shot I managed to grab - through the window, with a barely focused zoom - before this woodpecker flew away. He was HUGE - the biggest one I've ever seen.
When he flew to the neighboring tree, the thin branch actually moved under his weight. Amazing.

Great shot. I always find it hard to photograph birds.

I think you did a great job, Sue! I agree though....birds are so hard to photograph unless you have all the huge detachable zoom lenses. They don't let you get too close and they are so quick to fly away. I guess that's a good thing for their own safety.
