_MG_1180 Pileated XTi Mama (Male Pileated)

Interesting that the shorter focal length made the background bokeh rather unattractive. This was treated with Photoshop Mama's Focus Blur action. I had no filter on the lens.

I believe that is the kind of woodpecker Woody Woodpecker was.

Wonderful. That's a very impressive bird at bird feeders.

Wow, what a difference. I love your pileated. I hope I get a couple to come to my backyard!

Can't agree more. The background looks much better. Great shot!

Nice shot. I can see what you mean. This bokeh is much more pleasing.

Nice shot, the additinal blur to smooth the background certainly results in a more pleasing image.
