Default woodpecker

Finally some days off and time to go shooting again. Here is a common woodpecker (Dendrocopos major) sitting at the nest opening.

Looks like you have a fine copy of the Tair 300mm 4.5.

The picture is very nice. The bokeh with a lens with 16 shutter blades is something to behold. Your common woodpecker is not common to me and I find it quite enjoyable to see.

Nice shot!

Looks good, great results for this "not so young" lens.

Very nice. There is a woodpecker in our yard somewhere. I can hear it. But, it's never out in the open. And, we have three acres of mostly woods.

The Tair 300 is a very nice lens and you use it so well. Nice shot there.

Very nicely done. I agree, that lens sure gives this picture a lovely look to it.
