Woody stay still!

Not for long hence this quick grab shot. It's a bit soft but the best I got. I've not tried to sharpen it just a slight crop and contrast tweak. This is the first time I've seen this lovely bird in the wild and definitely only caught in an image due to the speed of the EM1 mk2.

Re: Woody stay still!

Quick grab shots is all I ever seem to manage for most birds as they rarely pose for long. Nice shot.

Grab shot or not, that's a beaut.

The only time I've ever seen Woody Woodpecker is when someone else posts a snap-shot.

Thanx 4 sharing.
