Female Red Bellied Woodpecker with 70-200 VR

Discussion in 'Birds' started by EdMac, Jun 20, 2005.

  1. I took this shot yesterday. There is a pair of Woodpeckers that have been visiting. I have several of the male, but this is the first one of the female.
    I used the 70-200 and the D100. This was in aperture priority using the onboard flash for fill. Comments welcome as always. Enjoy :D

    Hi Steve,

    I have to admit that there was a lot of luck. There is a lot of back lighting if you happen to shoot near an opening in the branches, as well. Thanks for your comments. :D 
  5. Nice shot under tough condtions, so was thsi down at your trailer?
  6. Trailer

    Hi Mike,
    Yeah, it was from my deck at the trailer. This pair of Woodpeckers has been visiting my feeder on a regular basis. Thanks for the comments.

  7. Fast Lens

  8. Great shot Ed. I too was able to see the female when we recently visited the Florida Keys. I also have the D100 and 70-200vr. I have not tried the on board flash with this lens. I thought the lens would block the flash but apparently it works just fine.

    Hi james,

    I am sure that it depends on the distance. In this case, I was about 20 feet away, and only using it as fill. I am sure that closer in, it would create a shadow. Thanks for your comments. :D
