I have been posting quite a few Zenitar 16mm shots this year. But I think this may top it all. See if you guys like it. I was feeding it and taking pict at the same time. Real fun. Particularly precious this time of the year in Toronto.

I stress this is not photography. It is a matter of spending some time and bird food.

Wow, I believe that is a Hairy Woodpecker and they are hard to get close to around here. Nice Shot.

Tom,

Thanks.
It is somewhat like alternative photography. I invest in time and bird food. Instead of photo gear or software.

Nice birding shot. Quite a friendly bird you got there. How did you manage to manual focus with only one hand?

Hi Daniel,

First it's winter GBHs in Toronto, now a Downy WP in your hand. What's next, a couple of Eagles cooking a rabbit on a spit? :-) -- and I'm stuck shooting sparrows in Chicago.:?

Can't wait for what you come up with next!

GREAT shot!!!!!!

Scott

What a cutie! I disagree with you about that not being "photography." It's what I think of as photography - getting cool shots of what is around you, especially if it is interesting or unusual. You handfeeding a woodpecker in December in Toronto fits all of the above. Loveit!

Wonderful photograph, you must be a good person for a wild animal to trust you so.
