    Nice shots of a female Red Bellied 'Pecker. We don't get them this far North.

    Thanks Roger. I wasn't sure of the Id. They never look like the pictures. I thought either the Red Belly or a Ladder Back.

    Excellent shots. #1 For me. Colors and Detail work great.
    I knew you would get some good ones soon.

    A lovely looking subject Kevin.Not a fan of the highlight in the eye of #2,and in all honesty it spoils it slightly,flash by any chance?I am thinking that you perhaps have with all of them.The first is my choice,but I do like to see some natural shadows in images,but thats just me :grin:

    Thanks. Yes I used a flashed with one of those extenders on it. It was way to dark to shoot without it. I agree, that catchlight is a little big for that shot. One of the reasons I posted several shots. Partially my fault. The Fresnel piece fell out and I put it in backwards, making the beam wider.

    There are plenty here also. I find them pretty hard to "hunt" down in the thick of it.

    Number 1 is my pick. The catchlight in the eye on number two is pretty extreme and mildly disturbing. :p
