Default Operation "Dirty Harry"

(if there is an ad, i don't endorse it)

Well, I've been shooting at the feeder alot, and there has been a great selection. One has eluded me. When I'm out, the Harry woodpecker is no where to be found. I come back inside, they show up in force.

Hence, Operation Dirty Harry. The "Dirty" part is only to make it sound cool.

Pics follow

What I did was crack the patio door enough to get the muzzle of the 300 f2.8 through. Its freexing out, so that will cost a few bucks, no doubt. I was expecting some heat wave distortion, and got it in many shots.

Anyway, got some bird pics.

All with the E-5 and 300mm without converters. I was in hopes of the bigger woodpeckers, so some cropping of the little ones.

These show up at all the parties, Operation Dirty Harry is no exception.


These lil ones are always welcome.


Gold finches too.

Do you know I don't have a single decent pic of a Harry Woodpecker. Pulse quickens....

Nice shots Greg. (Glad you were basically inside so you didn't get too cold.)

Default Could it be????

Pretty wicked shadows, but yes, I believe this is a Harry.





This one is more like it.

great shots & captures Greg, good to see you achieved your goal. looks like the 300 didn't suffer to badly from the demise of the first e-5.
