    One more example of bird photography à LaFoto :roll:

    I walked along the banks of our river here and heard this toc-toc-toc.
    I tried not to be too noisy in the old leaves and strained my eyes to find him. And I did: high up in the tree.

    This is what my sister's zoom lens gave me at the full 200mm:

    This is a close crop of the same. It is a woodpecker, all right. But after this, he flew away :(

    Thanks so much.
    If only my bird photography would make people happy (and myself, too), not only my descriptions and remarks and comment ;) :roll: :meh: :er:.

    See, you are getting there. Just a little more practice and a zoom lens. At least he is not flying or running away in the photo :). Very interesting looking bird.

    Ah well, by means of cropping out small chunks of a large photo!
    And he watched me - I think! He did not continue pecking away. Ah well.
    (And this when my maiden name was "Vogel" which means nothing else but "bird" :roll: )

    see if you can find a 2x converter LaFoto, and zoom in as much as you can.. also, see if there are any bird feeders around, that are maintained every day.. makes life easy for a photog!

    ask around, maybe at a bird feed supply place., someone I am sure will have some info for you,.. or, better yet, put up some feeders in your yard!
