PECKERS !!!



Wood peckers , that is !!!
 Lot's of little "Downies" have been around lately.
 Most of them are females.




It's becoming a rarity not to see them
when I look out of the kitchen window.



I've had a lot of trouble getting a clear picture of them.




Until now....










The first three pictures were taken with my new camera.
Power Shot SX50HS
I just love it but have a lot to learn.

Enjoy that new camera. The little woodies are frequent visitors to our gardens too.

You have some very good photos here. Enjoy the new camera, and it does take time to learn it, but that is a great camera to have. These are fantastic photos to start off with. I like your blog and will follow.
