Hello friends, the photo of the thumbnail
it is much better than the bigger one here !!
I agree with you if you tell me it must be
more space in-front of the bird than behind
and the focus is not 100%, but friends just
take in consideration this photo was shot
with a camera that its lens it stay inside
the camera, it does not go out from it,
so for this camera I think this is a
very good difficult in-flight shot.

1/125s f/5.6 ISO100 12.6mm (35mm eq:70mm),
it is the camera that choose the shutter speed
and the aperture, for the ISO I prefer to stay
at ISO100 for less digital noise, for the aperture
with or without zooming and depending the light
I can decide of the aperture but i can not choose.

from the All About Birds website

« Hairy Woodpeckers are birds of mature
forests across the continent. They’re also
found in woodlots, suburbs, parks, and cemeteries,
as well as forest edges, open woodlands of oak and
pine, recently burned forests, and stands infested
by bark beetles. »
