Northern Flicker-Male

I’m so excited-this is the best Northern Flickr image I’ve made to date! My friend Rainey and I had been shooting wildflowers up in the mountains when were descending we spotted him pecking at the road. He flew up to this perch and stayed just long enough to capture two fames. Both were a bit over exposed, and not as sharp as I would have liked. Thankfully Adobe Camera Raw, and a bit of sharpening in Photoshop saved the image.

I am not happy about cutting off his tail though. So, while I’m happy to have made this image there is a better one still to be made. The chase continues. 🙂
