Almost captured I
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Here my contibution to the theme near misses,the lesser spotted woodpecker (not so common as the great spotted woodpecker) was coming unpredicted down at gravity speed,I just noticed the bird (heard him) higher up in the tree and was preparing to take a picture when he suddenly came in fast,so I just clicked with the settings which were on my camera,I know its not one of the best pictures,but I like it a lot and in fact it is actually not a near miss but almost captered.|
More information about the lesser spotted woodpecker you can find here in the wikipedia.
The shot was taken hanheld,I tried to sharpen it with usm,but this was my best result.

Wow it is ready for landing as I can see its landing system is prepared.
You had to handle fast I think.
Hello Paul, I know the feeling when trying to get a bird in flight, I have tried so many times with these woodpeckers but they are just to fast. Well done Anyway.
