The Photographer at Work

Our summer vacation consisted of back to back trips, first to Utah and Nevada, then to Mexico. The Utah/Nevada trip was a birding excursion, and one of the target birds was the Three-toed Woodpecker.

We wandered down trails, back and forth, hoping to see one. We did not.

But as we passed through the campgrounds on our way out, we spotted four!

Here is the 'old' trip leader A exhibiting excellent form with a camera as the bird sticks it's head out of the side of the tree (as always, click the image to bigafy it).

Here's a crop showing the birds head, top center of the image. Note the yellow forehead spot.

It's not everyday you get a good bird in iPhone camera range.
