There's been a woodpecker that's lived close to our house for a while now, and as spring is here, he's out and about, making noise. It's often hard to see woodpeckers, even if you can hear them, but today I managed to capture him with the D90 and Nikkor 80-200mm f2.8 with a Nikkor TC 20II tele converter. This shot is going to win exactly no prizes in the next National Geographic competition, but it was good to see him and get a shot in. This shot is a very serious crop of the original.
While I had the camera out I shot a few other small birds, with similar results.
It's for these sorts of shots that it is nice to have a long lens around, even if it doesn't get a ton of use.
