So, is the 1D MkII in the shop?

The second one is interesting to me because I would have thought their wings would be out when they land. I guess not. Nice catch.

Hi eric, I thought the shot was extremely strange myself. I got rid of athin branchobstructing partof the woodpecker's beak but didn't touch the wings or landing pose. It appears that I caught the bird about a zillionth of asecond before it actually hit the wood with it's feet (pure luck). I was quite amazed, actually, upon realizing that the feet were not touching anything.

I carry the Rebel around as a second cam and was testing a new lens ( 200 F/1.8 ) The Rebel body just happened to be attached to the lens the moment the woody appeared.

Thanks for dropping by for a look people.

You must be close by to get these shots with 200mm. BTW - The #2seems to be a bit over-blown (white), maybe it is my laptop screen.

Hi Bobby, I neglected to mention that I had a 1.4x converter as well, which makes for a bit more distance. Yes, the frontal area of the second photo is over-exposed. I chose not to try to recover the details as to me the light seemed to add a mood to the overall photograph. I appreciate your comments.
