DOWNY WOODPECKER

Downy Woodpecker

The Downy Woodpecker is common in our area and you often hear them before you see them. The Downy is smaller than the Hairy Woodpecker but its basic colouring is the same. I took this photo at a small F-stop and narrow depth of field which contributed to the background effect you see. I find that it sets the bird off nicely and adds to the photograph.

  4. Lovely pose and excellent photograph! Nice aperture choice. I like to shoot a bit wider too. To blur out the background f/5.6 to f/8 are where I hang out.
