A big Pileated Woodpecker stopping by the Backyard for a quick meal is always exciting! Camera work a little shaky at long range through the glass this time. I purposely let the long leaf pine tree that was blown down in a hurricane back in 2005 remain leaning on the backyard fence. It is now infested with bugs under the bark and starting to decay and should be a real magnet for woodpeckers etc. in the future. I'm going to set up the game camera there and see what i capture on film!
