Workshop Note
Trying to capture a West Indian Woodpecker walking up a palm tree can be a funny game. The bird will always be aware that at camera is pointing at it, and it will escape by just turning to the other side of the trunk. So you would end up going endless circles around the palm tree while the woodpecker would climb up the trunk in circles. Besides keeping you in good health there is another advantage in that game: You can enjoy different angles of light. Here the woodpecker has turned to the sunny side of the trunk.

SONY DSC-HX1, 3456 x 2592 pixel, sRGB, 100mm tele-zoom (equivalent 560 mm at full size SLR), F/5.2, 1/800 sec., ISO-125, hand held, no flash. 17.02.2010, 09:10. Postwork: Photoshop CS4. Slightly cropped, levels slightly adjusted, downsized to web, selectively resharpened.

Hope you enjoy.
