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

Re: Good shot Ed

Must've been tough getting a focus lock through all those branches & leaves!
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

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.

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
