Lucky shot.....

June 12, 2016  •  1 Comment

Now that I am here in Virginia, I have been taking some morning walks in one of my favorite places, the Greensprings Nature Trail.  When we lived here 10 years ago, I would visit frequently to photograph and enjoy the trail.  

 

As soon as I got to one of my regular photo locations, a pair of Pileated Woodpeckers landed on a tree about 30 yards in front of me.  I quickly turned the camera on and captured two images before it flew off.  I've never had a Pileated come that close before.

 

It was still early morning and quite dark.  I had to use ISO 1600 to capture the image which required a bit of attention in Lightroom.  Not bad for a small superzoom camera!

I haven't really gotten around to looking at your website, but I got to it on the day you posted. Funny coincidence?

I love the photo. Nature and animals in their wild habitat is a beautiful thing to behold. I'll have to make sure to go there if I ever get back to Virginia.
