Overcast day but warmer than it has been for a while. Walking along a boardwalk on the lake someone left a little pile of sunflower seeds out and it attracted a nice variety. Got my first red-bellied woodpecker.

Fantastic shots, as always. I've always been a sucker for a male cardinal on a white background.

Thanks. Yeah, but I always have trouble with the red of the cardinal. Not sure if its an Olympus thing or not.

The boardwalk goes along the lake. A forest on one side and thin strip of trees on the lake side. I am guessing they are fed a lot there. When I got to that point there was four woodpeckers, a couple of nuthatches and chickadees all at the same time. Need to bring the wife there, she will love having the chickadees take food from her hand.

Huh, funny you mention that. Just the other day I was thinking about the reds in a photo that seemed super saturated, and I had to reduce the red saturation in LR. It’s happened to me a couple of times.
