Pileated Woodpecker 20080531

(Dryocopus pileatus)

Kind of an interesting effect resulting from the slow shutter speed, the lens IS, the bird's
movement, and shallow depth of field. This is essentially the way the shot came out of the camera.

Photographed at the Dominion Arboretum in Ottawa, Ontario - the capital of Canada.

other sizes: small medium original auto

good catch- these guys are hard to find and difficult to photograph - very skittish!

An impressionist image that certainly emphasizes light and movement while portraying an essence of the bird. Well done.
