[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Most of the time Hairy woodpeckers will let you photograph them. I once saw one sniffing the tree it was pecking on. They do use smell, but I'm not sure for what. I think to sniff out insects. I should mention that this one with the red on his head is male.

Hello Trevor

Excellent close-up photo of this Hairy Woodpecker,
fine POV, beautiful light, excellent focus
sharpness and details, TFS


Hi Trevor,

The tree and the leaves are framing well the butterfly. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the hairy Woodpecker. The late afternoon light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.
