    Had some great opportunities this last weekend and a new catch for me ... Male Hairy Woodpecker.

    If you do not mind, what are the specs of these shots, including approximately how far from the subjects you were when shooting.

    Thanks, I appreciate the info, it will help me a lot

    Very nice shots!! Just as a side note, your watermark on the first one is a bit distracting for me.

    Thank you , I get that a lot about the watermark, but its kind of a deterrent for those who want to take an image and use it for themselves,which has happened more than once.

    lol yes it would be, but the positioning of the watermark in the second one is much better than the first, so its not bad to have it in there, just depends on where you put it.
