Canon FDn 300 on NEX-7
One of the things that struck me about these photos is that one of them clearly shows the spot of red on his belly for which they are named. 99 times out of 100 I never see it because they're either facing away from me against a tree, or sideways to me against a tree, or behind a tree too low to see the red spot, etc...lucked out in one of these
Thank you for that! I have never seen the "red belly" and I've lived around them most of my life. Both are excellent captures of a colorful male.
Brilliant pics. I see them occasionally at our feeders. Funny how their head color is so prominent, yet they are named after a faint patch on their bellies.
I guess not to confuse them with the true Red Headed Woodpecker...
Separate names with a comma.
