Japanese Woodpecker


Had a wonderful time today trying to photograph this Japanese Woodpecker. He was a toughy, mostly directly above me in the shadows. So it was mostly looking up his backside and into the sun. I had to react quickly when he finally moved into some open, sunlit spaces but it was still hard to get his face. I think he's a beauty. At Junsai-ike, Niigata City.
