Well, here it is, Woody's tongue with what looks like a cobweb hanging across the beak. Maybe it's been awhile since his last meal. Don't his eyes, half closed, give the impression that this one is in a real fine mood?

EF400/5.6L Canon lens



FULL FRAME (resized but no crop to speak of)

Great close-up and catch. Never saw a woodpeckers tongue before. This
photo almost reminds me of someone about to sneeze. BTW, looks like
you had some sun. It's been a while, hasn't it.

You never fail to amaze me with your "so very unusual captures" . And capture, indeed you did. Couldn't be any sharper...........

WM - thanks for having a peek and, yes, some sun is coming through and it appears that it will be hanging around for a few days, which is real nice. I almost forgot what it was like to look up and see blue.

Pierre - yes, that tongue is quite the thing, didn't really see it until downloading. I was quite happy that he decided to share it with one of his fans...me :-)

Houston - thanks so much for the nice words. I did some selective USM on this one to touch up what the lens seems to have already done. Again, I'm pleased with the purchase and will try my best to do it justice. Wish it was an F/4 but then it would be heavier and cost more, so what the heck. I'm happy.
