Subject: [Leica] IMG: Acorn Woodpecker
From: wildlightphoto at (

Best known for its habit of drilling holes to store acorns, the Acorn 
Woodpecker has to do more mundane things too like quench his thirst.  This 
bird is an adult male who has just dipped his bill into the pond 
(background) and is letting the water run down his throat.

technical stuff:

R8/DMR @ISO 400
560mm f/6.8 Telyt with UET-R extension tube
shoulder stock & monopod
1/250 sec @ f/6.8

All comments welcome.
