thanks, everyone! wasn't sure how these would come out... they were shot with a 5D2, FF body, and i'm used to the extra 1.6x reach a crop body gives me with my 400... but the 5D2 has twice the pixel count of my 40D, so even cropped a bit more, these still came out nicely...

It's been said already but, wow! I've got several woodpecker holes I watch and have never gotten one good in the hole shot. Those are spectacular. I love photos that give insight to how wildlife actual behaves

Right place at the right time. Very cool sequence Rocky. Sometimes, I'd rather be lucky. Well done.

Cheers,
Steve

Very nice series! I like number 3 the best. This is one smart bird just look at how she/he closed the eye when tossing the wood chips. I can use her/him to clean up my kid's room.
