Wow, really great pictures, especially the woodpecker. I have one question how did you get this close to the woodpecker. Here in Lv, woodpeckers are really shy and usually sit somewhere in high in tree. I'm asking this because you are shooting with Fz20 and raynox 1540 (I'm right?), so I also have Fz20 and probably will order this raynox, so I will be in the same boat as you are :-) And I'm little bit curious, how do you do it :-)

Cheers!

I take most of my bird shots from a bird blind. People put suet in that log to attract them. Even so, this is the first time in two years I've seen a Red belly Woodpecker come to the log. You're right, they are very shy and usually stay up high.

Hey mullen, these shots tip the scale. Great work. I know how difficult it is to catch a squirrel chase properly and you've done an excellent job. Those animals are quicker than chickadees sometimes.

The woodpecker shot is one of the best I've seen of that particular type. Sharpness and detail are both excellent and color is superior. You can't get any better than that. The surroundings all fit very nicely into the overall picture as well, which is just icing on the cake.

These are really good.

Thank you very much for the views and compliments every one. Normcar, I finally figured out I can shoot with my highter iso settings on sunny days without getting too much noise. The faster shutter speeds, comparitively speaking to what I used to shoot at, are really helping out. And you're right about the squirrels. They were flying around that tree. Thanks again for the encouraging words.
