_MG_9405 Shes back!

_MG_9405 She's back!

First reasonable female pileated woodpecker capture this season. (Males have a red stripe coming out from the sides of their beaks). Internal reflections from double paned sliding door made contrast low. Had to apply a lot of Photoshop manipulation to get a better dynamic range.

Canon EOS 7D
1/400s f/4.0 at 300.0mm iso1000 full exif

other sizes: small medium original

Great shot, hard to do also. Got the colors and sharpness perfect. V

What a coincidence - today I saw our great spotted woodpecker the first time this autumn, but just a very short time, was not able to take a picture...
Fine work Isabel!
