A few WPs at my suet trees. I've got a Red-headed and Northern Flicker that I haven't been able to capture yet. I'm still experimenting with settings on my D300. These were shot with the 200-400mm lens.

Outstanding photos of these beautiful birds. My next door neighbor has a wooden leg and always breaks out in a sweat when he sees one.

Wow! Those are striking. Which 200-400mm are you using? It looks great.

Steve....I'm using the Nikon 200-400mm f4 af-s VR lens. I was using the 300mm f4 which was very sharp and much easier to shoot off hand but I really like the versatility of the 200-400.

Bravo. All are terrific. Especially like 3 & 4. The bokehs there just blend perfectly with the plumage of the woodpecker. I tried the 200-400mm in the showroom and it is just great. Despite the gears, I think the way you approached the bird was also even more terrific. You really have great patience,top-notch skill and aesthetic eyes.
