Ronny, Phil, Tom & Roy,

Thanks for looking. I cannot recognise if that was the same one I was feeding and photographing. Same species (downy woodpecker , male one identified because of the red feather) though and same location.

Roy,
It is more like Iceland. Yes with some occasional break of under -10 deg C (around 20 deg F in the U S ). We have somewhat like a belated winter here. Can't wait for spring to take some pict as good as yours

Strange to see them in the trees. I thought you had the handholding (both camera and bird) down to a fine art now! LOL

Good shots by the way.

Darren,

No matter how much I have improved on handholding, nothing happens unless the bird comes down. They call the shots not the photographer. It is hard act to follow if not impossible. Chickadee (as shot with FA28mm 2. 8or pigeon may be ok as shown in my trial run

But handfeeding a wild bird and taking pict simultaneously is likely once a lifetime thing. I stress in my earlier post that it was sheer luck. But it was fun having that in the middle of winter. I had that late Dec. Well I hope I can get better shot technique wise. But that has to fall on your lap so to speak.

Daniel
