I have to agree with Walt, did you nail this poor guy to the tree, ;-). Of course not but I'm amazed at how close you got! I was trying to do the same sort of image by using a radio trigger and flash. It would have worked too, given more time to practice LOL.

Aren't they sweet! Wonderful detail and nicely done with the macro.

A great shot, looks like our lesser spotted woodpecker.

Almost looks like he was nailed onto the tree! Close range, very sharp!

Amazing, to me at least, that he let you get that close. The little patch of red at the back makes him look like a mostly bald guy trying to remind the world that his hair used to be red. ;-)
