Rainy Day Gila

(Please view in original size for best quality.)

During one of the few rain storms in Tucson I moved a cholla branch next to the back porch then opened the back sliding glass door and hung up a camouflage netting to see
if I could photograph any birds during the rain. After a short wait a male Gila Woodpecker landed on the cholla branch and waited the storm out for some wonderful photo opportunities.

Very nice with the filtered light and a treat for an image with desert rain.
