Red Bellied Woodpecker from Everglades National Park

Apr 19, 2012 | Animals & Wildlife

Anyone who shoots birds will know how difficult it is to get a good shot of a Red Bellied Woodpecker. They rarely stay still and when you find them they like to hope around to the other side of the tree. The worse is the lightning condition where these woodpeckers are usually found which is mostly shady low light areas. Needless to say I have never gotten a good clean Red Bellied Woodpecker shot until my recent trip to the Everglades National Park. I found this guy in all the right conditions to pull off my sharpest Red Bellied Woodpecker shot to date.
