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.
