This was really awesome for me today. After several hours, a couple of trips, finally caught both of them there. It looked like the changing of the guards.

I am really really jealous. I have a pair around here. I have seen it fly from woods to woods across the street. The streek, I call it. grrrr.
He landed on a phone pole the other day an I got a shot. Not one I would put on here.:>))) I have been trying for a year to get this guy.

The streek, your right about that. They act like they have ants in their pants. Just when you think you can get a shot, they move off. The location of this one is in a dead tree next to the creek that runs next to town. I set up my tripod in the middle of the creek and wait. With my muck boots on of course, water isn't that warm yet.

I got several shots of this one, at different f/stops, but now I wished I had shot a faster shutter speed. But, thats part of learning this stuff.

Thanks for looking Gail.

Very nice shots. The pileated wp is one bird I want to capture. I have only seen one one tiem. I did have my camera but I got a lousy shot.

I am tempted to ask for a stuffed one in the for sale section. Then I can stick it on a tree and take as many shots as I want.:smile:

Isn't that the truth! They are so frustrating. Luckily last week this particular one apparently found a cache of ants or something in a dead tree. It obssessed for five minutes at that hole. Finally!

It makes you feel good when you finally get the shot.
