I made a quick trip to the San Angelo State Park this morning. Jim Miller had told me that the windows had been replaced and I wanted to check them out. I agree with him, they are more solid than before and should last awhile. While there, Ann and I decided to check out the birds. I managed to get this photo of a Golden-fronted Woodpecker (Melanerpes auarifrons).
Photographed with Canon EOS 7d and Canon 100-400mm lens. I was shooting into the sun but by using spot metering I managed to get a pretty decent shot. I put my center focusing point on the bird and the camera done it’s job. Camera to subject distance about 22 feet, 1/500 sec @ f8, ISO 640. Aperture priority.
I shot the image in RAW and did the post processing in Photoshop CS5.
