Hi Luggers,
I was up on my study balcony this morning cleaning eaves and inserting  
screening to keep the pine cones out of the drains over the winter  
when I heard this "tap tap tap".
I turned and looked up. It was a red breasted sap sucker tapping for  
worms. I grabbed my D700 with the 70 - 200 VR zoom and 2 X extender on  
it and fired off a couple of shots - 1/200 at f7.1 - ISO 400. The bird  
turned and looked at me and very clearly said "You are not Doug Herr  
and that is not a Leica" and he flew away. :-)

Here's one of the shots.

C &C always welcome.
